Andy 的第一場網球比賽 (英文寫作練習1)
2010/12/10 15:45:23瀏覽1498|回應15|推薦83


One day last summer, on my way home, driving somewhere near Da Li Sport Park, I noticed a poster, which read," Summer tennis lessons for the youth, a month for less than 2 thousand dollars". My son, Andy, was in the car, and I asked if he would like to attend. He said "Yes".

Since then, Andy enjoyed playing tennis very much in his free time and it has become his favorite after school activity. Together, we often watched ATP tennis games on MOD TV. Thus we get to know those famous players like Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Djokovic, Andy Murry, Stosur, Wozmiacki, Jonkovic, Dementeava, and the Williams.( spelling to the sound only)

Last week, Andy's coach asked if he would like to give it a try at a tournament held by Taichung Tennis Association. He said "say" and went to the match on Dec.4 and 5. To our surprise, he won the first run. Although he failed the second one,  it still felt great because that was, after all, his very first game.

On the court, he learned the rules and manners of how to play tennis, the technics and experience to interact with different players, and most of, an absolutely positive attitude when facing a game.

I'm very proud of Andy because now he not only plays the piano but also plays tennis. Those are the two things I've always believed a man should learn and enjoy in his life.

BTW, which one do you think Andy is ?

好的背景音樂

真心的音樂﹐好喜歡您這文的背景音樂。今天是雨天﹐詩情畫意﹐也可說是多愁善感的顛鋒情緒。

Kevin Kern 來過台灣

最近還來台灣上張菲的節目
許多年前有位可能剛出社會的女孩到我工作的地方推銷CD
基於捧場跟她買了一套Kevin Kern的綠鋼琴
後來他在台灣變成很多人喜愛
好像還到小學去彈鋼琴給小朋友聽
我的小孩Emma & Andy都會彈一點綠鋼琴的曲子
或許生活的紛擾與壓力吧!
大家會喜歡他可能是因為他的音樂有一種安定沉殿情緒的力量...

Andy is a lucky boy, if this story was happened in your family; and I think you should be a good father.
Merry Christmas!

Thanks for responding to the article.
I hope I can be with my children as much as I can before they go to colleges.
That's why I've been looking for some recipe lately.
I cook for them sometimes during the week days or on the weekends.
It feels great to hear them say ,"It's delicious".
Robert

Play like a man

Hi, Robert: I think you are a very good father. You spend a lot of time with your children that are remarkable. I agree with you. Playing sports or music will consume a great deal of time. Persistence and tolerant will be keys of success.

Play like a man. Yes, Andy would love to play like a man.
Moreover, to tell you a secret. He said, " I want to be like "Rafael Nadal" someday!"
Ha, ha ...
Thanks for your compliment !
Merry X'mas !
Robert

Please refer to my next article that will be out in a couple of days, I am still gathering my thoughts together. Tennis and playing the piano is not a perfect combination, just like: watching TV and gambling. It just doesn't fly!!

Merry X'mas !

He plays tennis very well. Playing piano and tennis are two different things. You may make it together, but you can't make Andy.
Like father like son. I bet you can play too. Thank you for sharing your daily life. it is interesting. Good sport~
