*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can’t seem keep our mouths shut about it(them). If you’d like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll. Feel free to “capture” my 7 Clown Circus button (below and on the left) or simply hyperlink to my site, and be sure to add yourself to Mr. Linky. Thanks for playing along!

My kids *HEART*tennising”.

Just in case you are wondering, that’s a real word. Tennising.

At least in my household.

I’ve got some amazing ball chasers.

That I do.

Come out, come out, where ever you are…..
Yes, I am talking to you, Mr. Linky.
(I’m doing my best to find out why Mr. Linky is being shy…..when I figure it out, I’ll be sure to tell him he MUST make an appearance. Thanks for your patience, and your willingness to come back by to link up!)

UPDATE: Mr. Linky was still being shy so I dumped him for MckLinky. I’m pretty sure he was jealous because he finally showed up. Now the choice is yours. 🙂

    Awesome pictures. Lil' D started tennis this summer. He loves it, and his Spongebob racket. I have been playing since I was a kid. I look forward to the future when we can play each other. Have a wonderful day and take care. I will be returning for Mr. Linky.

    I am impressed. Everything I know about tennis I learned from wii. And what I know isn't that impressive. They look adorable!

    I'll keep checking back for mr linky to make his appearance!

    I'll comment now, and then come back and link up later, OK? Uncle Lynn and two of our boys are all awesome tennis players. Shark Boy even played all 4 years on the high school tennis team. We're trying to encourage Soccer Boy to take up the sport, but he's more interested in, well, you know…soccer!

    Have you considered MckLinky? It might be worth a try if Mr Linky is giving you troubles.

    As far as your kids are concerned, I see future tennis stars. 🙂

    What cuties!!! And so great that they all are so athletic!

    Happy WW!

    that first photo is just wonderful!

    i would be a complete mess on a tennis court! lol

    this looks like a great way for them to burn off some energy!!

    Genny says

    We have tennis courts around the corner from our house and your pictures made me want to load the kids up and take them out there! (I guess I'll have to wait until after my knee brace is off…lol)

    Joy says

    Hey, I totally get "tennising". I just set my alarm for VERY early in the AM to go captain my ladies tennis team. My husband is a tennis coach and my daughter's first toy was a tennis ball and she's only 1 and has her own racket. We are a "tennising" family.

    Nice to meet a another!

    And Misterlinky was shy for me too. Something's up.

    Very cute pictures. I played tennis in college…Jr. college, but still college none the less. Thanks for stopping by and reading my TT to my poor 'burb. In all seriousness, I am so grateful for all the little miracles that kept me safe that day. Take care.

    Every time I see this game or just photos, it reminds me how much I'd love to play!

    Love the photos of the little ones with their rackets!

    mr klinky is more high maintenance, but that ain't always a bad thing! tennis says summer. coming home from work in the dark – that yells winter, but i'm totally loving your tennising shots

    Hazel says

    I see future tennis stars! And with the first photo I get more meaning with the phrase "pretty in pink" Happy Wednesday!

    Kelly says

    What a great way to keep your kids active and entertained. I love the pink outfit in the first picture. I didn't think red hair and pink went together but she can pull it off

    Kim says

    What great shots!! I can't wait to get my little ones out on the court one day.. I haven't played in years but it is so much fun!

    Renée aka Mekhismom says

    The photos are great! Look at your kids go. They look like they can teach me a thing or two about tennis – not too difficult since I don't know how to play!

    Octamom says

    Love seeing those future Andy Roddick's running around! I particularly love the shot of your oldest–she's so beautiful and getting so grown up!


  22. 52

    Octamom says

    Okay, wait…I don't think that's your oldest–I think that's #2–that red hair–just adorable (like her mama)!

    Kathleen W. says

    Oh, that is my husband's dream, to have our son play tennis with him (or at least be a ball chaser). As usual, your tykes are so adorable.

    Sorry, I thought I commented earlier, but my computer was having probs and it didn't work.

    Also, sorry I seem to have accidentally linked up on both lists here…oops…

    now for my comment… love those tennis pics!! they look adorable. and i am so impressed that they are playing so young!

    Justine says

    Tennis is one of the sports I could just never get into. Maybe because running back and forth and sweating are involved. Oh wait, that'd be just about all sports.

    my son just told me the other day that he wanted to play tennis?? I was surprised – I thought he was my baseball prince!

    ♥spoiled mommy♥ says

    So cute!!
    And what a great sport for a workout, gosh we used to be so sore after playing when the kids were younger. Have to do that again!

    Brenda says

    My kids loved tennis too until at 12, my daughter was hit with a racquet on her mouth full of braces. . . my her dad, playing doubles.

    They are all glad they learned because its a fun grown up sport if you already feel comfortable with it. Now dad regularly throws out his shoulder playing with son 🙂

    They can come chase my tennis balls. That's my least favorite part, especially since I don't wear the balls in my shorts like lotsa people do.

    Kristin says

    Emma's pink outfit is seriously sooo darling. I always wanted to play tennis, just for the clothes. I'm coming next week for Brooke's baby blessing. Hope to have time to come see your new pad.

    Your pictures are beautiful! My boys and I absolutely love the beach too. We live in the Northeast, so the ocean tends to be a bit cold, but I still love it there!
