metz came to town last week. we were glad that he stopped by just to chat.
but all william knew was that this guy plays tennis. and since all william wants to do these days is play tennis, he decided that this tennis player guy should get out in the driveway and play with him. period. no ifs, ands or buts about it.
william got a quickstart net and balls for christmas, and he's been putting it to use since the weather has been warmer. but now that he got some real instruction (chase and i obviously don't know how to play tennis in his little mind), he's all about it!
i knew that he would listen to somebody else better than he would listen to me or chase (despite the fact that we could actually teach the kid how to play the game), but it was amazing to see how much better he hit the ball after 30 seconds of "teaching" by someone else.
we hope to see lots more of this in the near future!
otherwise, we may have to drive to columbus to get some lessons!
and for the record...chase traded out this lesson with a smoothie for the road on metz's drive back to starkville! i'm guessing that won't cut it in the future??
