There is a great program that we are involved in for free summer bowling all year round for our kids and up to 4 adults. We’ve gone bowling a bunch of times so far just as a family or with one of my brothers, his wife, and a few other people. It has been really fun for the boys and us. I was in a bowling league my freshman year of high school only, but have been bowling since I was about 5 or 6. I’m one of those people who even wears a glove when I bowl (a vintage one too). Sadly, I’m not that great and probably only average about 120 (if even). I’m hoping to watch my average grow to about 140 at this point. Rob rarely bowled until we started dating and his average is probably the same or a little better than mine. >.< Our boys play with bumpers (and Micah uses a ramp because he hasn’t the strength to throw it out without it getting stuck in the lane). Leto’s been getting better and sometimes his ball doesn’t hit the bumpers, which is cool. He puts his fingers in the holes and throws out with one arm (not doing the one-two-three double-hold throw). It will be really wonderful to watch them improve together as they grow (and possibly be in leagues like my brothers were in when I was growing up, and each of my parents were in as teens and adults).
This is what Micah looks like when he is waiting for his turn to bowl.
I have to wear “bowling clothes” that do not constrict my arms or make me trip (I used to bowl with gigantic pants, and that was not easy). I made the mistake of wearing a top that was tight on my arms recently and I couldn’t even lift my arms enough while bowling. I had the worst games that night.
He is really a darling! Leto tends to copy his little brother. It is hard sometimes to deal with since you would think the younger would want to imitate the older, not the opposite.
He’s my little mush boy and is getting so big. Eskimo kisses are Micah’s favorite (Leto likes butterfly kisses)
I love these little guys (and obsess over my husband)!
