Tennis Tournament: Carson

Oh Carson, my tender-hearted son.  He, like Bailey, started his day out by playing around on the courts with friends.  I believe, had he understood how tournaments work, especially single elimination tournaments, he would have played a little harder.  At the end of the day, I caught some tears welling up in his eyes.  To find out what was really going on, I had to pry it out of him.  He wasn’t so much upset that he had lost but sad that he only got to play one match.  I was really proud that he wasn’t having a bad attitude or being a poor sport, but rather was disappointed that he had only gotten to play one match.  He was learning how to lose in that moment.  It still broke my heart.
