Tonight for Family Home Evening we played badminton in our front yard. Never before have you seen such athleticism. The sound of rackets swishing aimlessly through the air, shuttlecocks hitting cars, flowers and Nicole (right between the eyes - don't worry she had on sunglasses.) It was something. If someone was watching us they probably would be unable to stop laughing. The lack of any sort of hand-eye coordination was spectacular - and our rules became creative. We are now strong believers in volleyball rules for badminton; in other words, you can have 3 hits on the same side before the shuttlecock or Nicole goes over the net (it was a rough game for Nicole).
