Badminton.


What have we here, a new [first] Kemp family sport??

 On vacation, the house my parents rented had a badminton set (part of which we promptly broke about an hour upon arrival).  Zach discovered that unlike almost every other sport (exceptions: running and climbing), I actually showed some kind of interest in playing.  I believe I've discovered the reason: it requires little coordination and arm strength.  Two things which seem to be necessary in most sports.  I really think it's quite fun.  I can actually hit the birdie!  This is greatly different from my one-year tennis career when I volleyed for 26th place on the team (that's not a joke) and rarely made contact with the ball.  If you couldn't tell, they didn't have tryouts.

Anyways, we picked up a cheap set today and had fun playing this afternoon.  I can't wait to play more!  Not gonna lie, Eloise cramped my style a little bit by sitting in the middle of my side of the net, but that's alright.  :)  She had fun sitting with a racquet and talking about it.

Also, below -  just a picture of the view from the house where we stayed.  We all went to Holiday World (I'm not much into theme parks, but this was really fun) and took a mini-vacay together for a few days.  It was so nice to be together, all the kids had a blast, and it was a great way to get out of my school funk (I didn't end up telling you guys that after finals we had this awful week that I never thought would be awful.  So glad it's over.).  So here they are, the pretty cows.
