Bringing the constantly fantastic and painfully insane together daily!

It’s not to win, it’s simply to play the game.

At least that is what us losers say! lol

Seriously though, today I took the girls bowling. Mavis, darling! at 9 had never been and I wondered how that is, but when I think of how these kids spent their first few years (from age 3 & 1 1/2 to roughly 6 & 4) I am struck by how hurricane Katrina really dictated a nomad type life and what with all the moving and things we kind of never thought of bowling alleys and skate rinks. Strange, I know. Sad, I know that as well.

Anyway, we went ahead and bowled! I, by the way, love to bowl probably because I am so bad at it I can’t take it too seriously!!! The kids had the most wonderful time. They all got along so well and were all so wonderfully behaved. I have to stop here and express how amazingly grateful I am to have my church as part of my family. It’s so good to have a group of children who are being raised with the same values and manners as your own. If you have well behaved children who have manners and follow rules then chances are you have had the dissatisfaction of watching your child stand in line while others continually cut them off waiting for a swing or a turn at a public park. It is frustrating trying to explain that type of thing to children, so it is always so lovely to be with a group of kids who all behave!

I was once again struck with the fact that my Lou ♥ is turning into a little lady, it seems to have happened over night that she is maturing and changing and I love who she is, but my heart mourns my little girl… She was so patient with the youngest child, teaching him how to roll the bowling ball and he was so pleased to have her attention! Mavis, darling! was happy as well, she did wonderfully with turns and treating everyone kindly! The little person she is is such a delight and I am just awe struck by the changes she has gone through since we switched to home schooling a few years ago. Behaviorally she is just so much better off with structure, individual attention and expectations.

I am sure all parents think their kids are just the cherry on top, but it’s true with mine! lol No, really, I can’t express what a blessing it is to have your kids grow into little people you don’t just love you really like! I like my girls, as in I enjoy my life spent with them, I have fun and learn and look forward to each day – that is so awesome!

Unrealted note: I found this on the Book of Faces and I am going to try it out. Hmmm…

(Two ingredients! No, not a joke)
Makes One 8 x 4 loaf
2 Cups Ice Cream, any flavor, softened
1 1/2 cups Self-Rising Flour
1. Preheat your oven to 350 Fahrenheit.
Spray and flour a 8 x 4 loaf pan, or line it
with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl mix the ice cream and
flour together until just combined.
3. Scoop into the loaf and smooth out.
4. Bake for about 45 minutes or until a toothpick
stuck in the loaf comes out with a few crumbs stuck to it.
5. Remove from the pan and allow to cool.

For best results..use full fat ice-cream!

Just choose the flavoring of ice cream that seems promising and have a fun
weekend of experimentation.
