On Rappel's suggestion, we met up yesterday for Sunday afternoon bumper bowling at Lincoln Square Lanes. (8 of us total now, damn.) It was the first time for all 3 kids and they loved it. J loved it so much, he didn't want to stop.

I found what worked best with Charlie was to get the ball on the ground and then roll it together. I let him roll unassisted a couple times, but he needed more oomph. One time the ball came to a standstill halfway down the lane, so I figured help from dad was fine.

After we sent the ball on its way, he'd usually ask, “Is it going to hit the pins?” 30 seconds later, after the ball finally made its way to the pins, we'd count how many were left, and he'd happily report back to mom, “I got 1-2-3-4-5!”

We've found a new weekend activity.

Oh That sounds like so much fun! We just went adult bowling at the same place a week ago and I had forgotten how great it is.

Thanks for a fun day! I think Ella got some good practice in for her Valentine's bowling tournament at her school. I can't even imagine how long it is going to take 40 preschoolers to bowl! It ought to be interesting.

40 preschoolers on 8 lanes? oh man.
