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.
