FOOOOOOOOOOORE

Or something like that anyway. This afternoon I took the girls out to play 9 holes (Par 3 course). They both did quite well. We didn't keep score, I didn't even take a score card. The best hole - Lauren got an almost legit 4 - ALMOST legit!

But we all had fun and that is what counts (oh except both girls had melt downs when the gnats came out - but we won't talk about how happy that made me)





Hailey and Lauren both enjoy golf right now. Lauren has had a few professional lessons this year and has been encouraged to begin competition this summer. We are going to try one tournament close to home and see how it goes!

Hailey, LOVES to hit balls - she is not too bad either for her age Check out the tucked chin in this picture



and the follow through in this one, complete with pointed toe...



And where else but in the Emerson household can a girly girl golf in her Easter Dress?


Or get her nails done just hours before she hits the links?

What a pretty Spring day to be out golfing. Hopefully you didn't have much wind.

The girls look so cute. Love Hailey in her dress.

Was that a professional manicure she was having??

They look like naturals - my favorite part is getting nails done! I think I've told you before that there are soooo many golf scholarships out there for girls. I'm trying to get MG into golf to help pay for college ;)

Oh I need to get my kids doing that! Golfing, not wearing dresses :-) There's a nice golf course near where we are moving and they offer kids lessons too. I think I better sign up with them - looks fun!

Your girls look like naturals! I especially love Hailey's follow through. You've got two future LPGA champs there.

When I took my boys golfing it looked way more out of control than your pics, lol! They look like naturals.
