Lets talk about bowling...




So this last weekend we took the girls bowling and while it was delightful it was once again a reminder that I will never be a superstar bowler. Yes it is true I try with all my heart to be good but for some reason I just can't do bowl. I studied the amazing grace and ease of the bowlers around me and then tried to implement what I had seen with no avail. While I will continue to work on my bowling skills I think it says a lot that Emma and I were tied most of the game. Yep she is four years old.

I'm surprised that ball doesn't take your sweet baby girl, Emma, down the lane with it. She can't weigh over 3 pounds more than that big, ol, orange, bowling ball...

Last time I went bowling the ball actually bounced when I tossed it. The guy at the desk walked over and asked me if I wouldn't like to consider taking up tennis. Que es verdad! It is true. Sad... but, maybe you and I could go together some time. We couldn't do any worse than get thrown out of the alley.

I'll have you know, I was the top bowler in my girl scout troop back in the day. Sadly, my skills have stayed at that same level for the past 20+ years, and I now usually fall in at last place whenever I go bowling with friends. :( We should go bowling together. It would be so fun!
