Bowling for Junior High


Tonight Annie and I took the Jr. High girls bowling for fun night. It was very interesting. Even though we were bumper bowling, several of the girls didn’t want to bowl because “bowling is dumb” and some other reason I didn’t understand. I think it was equivalent to “I’ll feel dumb if I do poorly.” I had a blast just dancin’ to the hokey bowling alley music, bowling a crappy game of 87, trying to order a pizza from the snack stand that never had an attendant present. Good times. It does get a little stressful sometimes that our “small group” isn’t small. I have corrected our Youth Pastor when he speaks of the small groups. I tell him that the correct term is “smallish” groups. I threatened to start calling them “medium” groups if he adds another member.
I’ve been working hard at Hyde. I think the year is going really great though. The students have been working hard and producing some great projects. I really like it, I think it is a neato school.
I’ve missed having a wedding ring. (For those of you who don’t know, it was lost a little over a month ago and has not been found) I’ve started to really miss it. I’ve been wearing my class ring instead because it is the only ring I have that doesn’t completely irritate me. But, I get really sensitive around other single men and am maybe even a little mean to them (some of you are very familiar with my biting sarcastic humor). I don’t want them to think that I’m single. So, I look for intresting ways to bring up my husband, just to drive the point home. I had a coworker ask me if I was going through a separation because she noticed I wasn’t wearing my wedding ring anymore. Ouch.
All in all…good times with Jr. High girls.
