Fore!



Well this weekend Steven took me to a driving range to learn how to hit the ball great distances! At first it felt really strange and my wrists were sore from yoga balancing, then he explained that I use my torso to power through my shot. "ah ha!" I thought to myself. Hip action is definitely something I can relate to. Probably because mom listened to lots of Elvis when she was pregnant! So it turns out I might take after Grammy Jo and become a golfing fiend. Once I was able to do the hippy shake, and keep my eye on the ball I was able to hit the ball about 100-150 yards. I think it's funny....because I'm forever telling Steven that I'm the only non-athlete of the fam. Next weekend my friends and I are going to go to a driving range and work on our putting and driving so that we can try a real golf course soon. I do think I want my own set of clubs and gloves though, my delicate little hands acquired blisters from my brief stint on Friday night. I loved it! I really thought about my Grammy Jo and how much she loved to be in the sunshine golfing! This ones for you Grammy Jo!
