A Nice Surprise....


Last weekend I played in my first USTA Tournament. It was so much fun and to boot.... we even won. I had 2 doubles matches with my partner and we won them both. I had 1 singles match, my very first by the way, and barely managed to pull out a win in the tiebreaker. -Let me just say it wasn't very pretty. I was so stinking nervous! But it is just so much fun to be part of an all girls team and to play competitively at something I love. Unfortunately Rob and the boys were unable to come, because a few were sick, it was a late match, and the whole logistics of having one car just didn't work out. But when I came home Friday night, the first thing I saw when I walked in the door was this awesome poster that my boys had made. It made my whole night. Spencer explained the whole thing: which pictures he colored, and which picture Carter colored, how it was Dad's idea, and he showed me the things that he wrote, and well-- I absolutely LOVED it! I love that Rob thought of me and involved the boys, I love how they had fun doing it, and I love to be loved!

Way to go Mackley family. The poster is fabulous and a great way to show your love and support when you couldn't be there in person. I'm sure Jen will respond with a GREAT dinner for all. Way to go Jen!! Win or lose you'll always be #1. Keep it up and remember to always have fun - win or lose. The fun part is always the most important. Sorry we couldn't be there. We knew how important it was for you and how excited you were when you called to tell us about it. Love to all.

Jen, good job! I was thinking about you and even mentioned your matches to Jon! And how cute that your boys were so proud of you. You are really loved... by all of us.

That is the cutest thing I have ever seen! I am also very proud of you for doing this, I would never be brave enough...but I may be the worst tennis player ever! I took a class in college and just buddied up to a 6'7" guy so he could stand at the net and protect my suckiness!
You are my hero
