And that's really phrasing it quite gently. Everytime we go on a family beach vacation with my (also not very sport-savvy) family, I get hit in the head with a volleyball. Every. Time.
My husband, however, can surf, skateboard, ski, and snowboard. He's a natural athlete--footballs and soccer balls don't send him running into hiding.
Shortly after we were married, he taught me how to catch and throw a Frisbee. It was that bad, ya'll.
Despite my lack of talent and experience, I really do want to learn how to play some sports. Soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, Tennis, and Volleyball top my list, especially since they can be played with others at get-togethers, etc.
Soooooo....! My hubby and I got to go on a date last weekend, and he took me to a tennis court and gave me a lesson. Not a tennis lesson, really. Just a "let's try to hit the ball back and forth over the net" lesson. Andrew has learned over the years not to give me lots of technical stuff to learn at the get-go, because I get discouraged. He is a very patient (and sweet!) teacher.
My crowning achievement? A volley in which we hit the ball back and forth a total of four times. :) Obviously, this is going to take quite a few more dates to iron out. We really had a great time, and I'm happy to have *started* to learn!
What about you? Are you like me--all arms and legs and no coordination? What sport do you enjoy or which one would you like to learn?
