Ringside Seat

While I was visiting Beccy and the family last month I managed to get a little video of Mollie knocking a few tennis balls to her mum, and Ben starting a tennis lesson.
This was the first time Mollie had picked up a racquet for a few weeks because of the problems with her feet. I think she was more interested in looking at me than keeping her eye on the ball!
Ben clearly wanted to aim his ball at me, you might hear Rob (the coach) ask him if he's trying to hit the camera and he replied.....see if you can hear! It's a pity about the background noise but on a nice day the lawns have to be cut!

Just wondering was I not good enough to appear in that video?

Beccy it was difficult enough keeping the camera pointed at the children let alone change direction~ your voice is in it~ anyway I thought you didn't like me to post pictures of you!!

Gee, Molly has quite a powerful stroke.

And Beccy, this is just further proof that you a nothing but a figment of our imagination.

Awwww! That was way cute! Especially the little fellow. I just loved his little run up in the beginning. A future star maybe?

I see that there is some hope for the home side at Wimbledon in about 10 or 15 years.

Tell Beccy she won't be appearing on your site and she needs to update her own. :) It's stuck on Brownies!

Loved your video. :) You were much steadier than I would be.

She seems pretty good to me, even with the distraction of Mrs, Spielberg!

Molly has pretty good form out there. Ben is too cute.

I just love listening to you all talk - (I just fall for the accents everytime)

And so has Ben;).
I liked his response -- very honest, lol!

I can't wait for Drama to start lessons.

They both look great out there and it was nice hearing your voice. A lovely accent for sure!!

I loved hearing "that voice." Was that you or Beccy? Or, I forget...Beccy really doesn't exist, does she?
Love watching Molly hit the ball. She has nice strokes. Makes me miss the days of watching my oldest on the court.

great video Chris...thanks for sharing!!

I like to see your video! Your camera is good and it´s great to hear from Beccy´s family again!

Lisa marie I keep reminding her and it's not like she hasn't got a lot to share~ like when she locked her keys in the car!

Considering my camera is a small digital it's not too bad for taking videos.

john you flatter me~ what are you after!!

karmyn my grand children have an Irish accent which you can't really pick up on this.

katy you can lead a horse etc....(now she'll say I'm calling her a horse and I'll be in trouble again!)

TLG Ben has a wicked sense of humour!

Alix I have been playing with some of the features in imovie!

swampy the loud bossy one is me and you can hear beccy in the background !! Mollie actually plays a lot better than this conveys she won a league match at the week end.

steffi I think beccy reads my comments so she will see everyone is missing her~ it might encourage her to start writing again.

beccy -if you'd just jumped the net you could have been in the video with your daughter.

Yes Chrisb...I love that British accent.

Love the little jog in place that Ben does before each shot! And what lovely spring sunshine!
