bowling . . .

Another great break activity!

We are all really bad at bowling, but we do enjoy doing it.  Over the holiday break I took the children out for a night to throw the balls down the lane.  We all opted NOT to have the guard rails on and just had fun knocking pins down.  Or not.  :)

For several weeks now I have attempted to post something of our Christmas time this year.  Each time I have sat down to upload pictures, the internet service has timed out, or my laptop has overheated and shut down without saving any of my work.  Today, I am making sure to KEEP my work.  :)

This year I went a little techy with gifts for some of the children.  They were in a little bit of shock because they have this strange idea that I am not a promoter of technology.  In fact, it is just the opposite.  And for the younger crowd, I did they usual making of gifts for them.

In addition to working out in the wood shop, cleaning up in the barn, and some sledding behind the Gator, we all spend oodles of time playing games and staying up late talking and laughing.  It is one of things that I think they will remember as the fun times when they were young.  :)
