Kids Just Wanna Have Fun

If I was only allowed two words to describe Teagan, it would be passionate and motivated.

I was lucky enough to have been gifted a round of golf (full 18 holes), but it contained a Cinderella clause. That said, since the kids didn’t have school today, Teagan and I decided to take it upon ourselves this afternoon to play a round (of 18). To add some color to this post, Teagan was introduced to golfing last year, playing several rounds of 9 at a local country club. We’ve slowly started to increase our rounds to 12, 13, and 14 holes, but never 18. Every time we had the opportunity to play, the weather was nothing short of gorgeous.

Today’s afternoon weather was far from ideal conditions to play golf, and let alone 18 holes; it was misty, slightly cool, and everything was wet, including the bottoms of our pants. Once we reached the end of 9, I turned to Teagan and asked, “Do you want to just head home lovebug? I know this weather stinks, and your feet are getting wet.” Teagan turns to me, smiles, and says, “No way, this is awesome, and I don’t want to leave. Don’t the golfers on TV play in this weather?” To which I replied, “They certainly do.” Teagan then says, “We’ve never played 18, and I want to do it, rain and all!” Nonetheless, we golfed our butts off, had a lot of fun, and watched Teagan improve with every shot, to the point her shots easily increased from 10 yards to 40-45 yards by the time we finished.
