Houston, we have Sport Court!


Soccer is not only a sport in our family, it is a way of life. To extend the pleasure and sometimes pain of soccer, we decided to put a sport court in our swamp-like backyard. We have three boys who have lots of energy to expend. Now they can play soccer, basketball, lacrosse and badminton on the court, even when it is wet.

Our backyard has always been wet. It’s a good size yard, but the kids wouldn’t play back there because of what a marshland it was. Now when the heat index isn’t above 105 degrees, they are out there all the time! Yes, I would have loved to have a new, updated kitchen, but a sport court will do for now.
