we like a good competition around here. first one in the car. first one up the stairs. who gets the biggest bunch of grapes at supper. you know....important stuff.
so, when we go to the tennis courts it is no different. we make fairly routine trips to the tennis courts these days, and we always play a game called "jail" before we leave. there is one winner. and 4 losers. and let's be honest....there are usually some tears as well. winning jail is a big deal around here. we were passing around one of chase's old SEC trophies, but he got a little concerned that it would get broken. so, i bought us our very own "henson family jail champion" trophy. if you win jail, it gets to stay in your room until the next week. and you can gloat and dance all you want. we've all been winners.
and we've all been losers. some are more gracious than others. i won't name any names, but there are definitely a few of us who hate to lose!! i'm hoping that will serve us well in the future. if not, i'm blaming it on their daddy.
