"You know I am trying to get my kiddo ready for the college season. He's been off the court a while after surgery and now exams.  Maybe I'll think about sending him to Chicago for a couple weeks in August before he heads to Kentucky"

Hi Sandra! My son played his first tournament this weekend, and I don't know how you do it.  I was a bucket of nerves.  I need to figure out how to chill out.  Also it was tough because he go beat so bad in the first round and really got down on himself after losing in consolation too.
