M*****'s Home School ~~
Home of the Rottweilers.
We started this blog with the purpose of sharing information with our friends and family, but most of all to give our students more experience in writing, publishing and improving their communication skills. But changes and life marched on and now this blog serves as a record of our school progress and some of that life that marches.

Had the annual Homeschool bowling party yesterday. The bowling alley was crazy chaotic as they had booked our group of 150 people along with 3 bus loads of 5th and 6th graders from one of the local public schools. They ran out of bowling shoes and most kids only had boots and socks so it was crazy and of course there were not enough light weight balls so you had these little kids trying to lug these 15 lb balls up to the lane. LOL! But it was loads of fun and entertaining. I laughed so hard as once again my youngest out scored the bigger kids. You know how the score board tells how fast your ball is going? Well, the average speed of other balls was between 7 and 9 mph. Jackson's average speed was 2.2 mph and he was hitting strikes and spares like a pro! They bowled 3 games with the final score being:
Jackson - 267
James - 254
Jordan - 262
7th grade was like, "I cannot keep letting my little brothers beat me in bowling!" Funny! There was lots of candy treats and the pizza at the bowling alley was good.
