Some things just don't get better than this!
Awhile back I mentioned that Donica and I met while playing on the same softball and bowling teams. But believe it or not, we had not played either sport since in our 8 years together. Until, that is, she surprised me one Saturday in April when Nicholas was with us for an overnight! Another believe it or not--this was not Nicholas' first time bowling! He said his daycare went once. An ole pro, you betcha.
This is a new bowling alley in our neck of the woods. See the Atlanta skyline staring us in the face and all the psychedelic colors to throw off our game (that's my excuse!)! Even gutter guards, for kids like Nicholas, to pinball their ball back on course. What a riot!
Watching that little body handle that 6-pound ball was a marvel to me. He plumb tuckered out after the first game but was sport enough for the second when we enticed him with arcade games afterwards (we can read him like a book!).
So if I tell you how bad my first game was (and why I was actually worried that Nicholas would beat me after he got two spares before I got one, since I kept splitting!), will you let me brag about my second? 106 and 178. Of course, if you throw out the low and the high, I'm at zero, but if you take the average of the two, 142 is about right for me.
