Well the countdown is on for Baby Douglas to arrive. The due date is 2/25, but it could happen any day now. We have the bags for the hospital packed, all of the stuff from the shower opened, all of the clothes washed, and the car seat is in the car ready to go. All we need now is the little one to decide when it's ready to introduce itself to the world. It's going to be a wild ride from here on out and I can't wait!
In the meantime, there is still some tennis to be played. We ended up winning the division for USTA 3.0 and therefore proceeded to the playoffs as the 3 seed. We had our opening match this past Saturday vs. Creekstone (who we played earlier this season and defeated). We had a late start due to the rain so I didn't arrive at the park until 2 PM for my match. When I got there, our S1 line had already lost (good effort Daniel!), and our D1 line was on the verge of losing. By the time I started my match, we had lost S1, D1, and were down one set for D2. Thankfully my match was over quickly (6-0, 6-1) with me coming out victorious, so I was able to watch the rest of the matches and root our guys on. D2 (Marcus V. and Shad) and D3 (Marcus B. and Darrin) came up huge with victories to seal the win for our team. So we're moving on to play next week and who knows what can happen from there!
Here's a shot of all the guys after the matches celebrating the victory. Great job everyone! I'm proud to be a part of the team!
