And the Silver Medal Goes To....!!

Elizabeth Anderson of the Mukilteo Pin Busters!!

She bowled today for 2 and a half hours! They've been practicing for a few months and I realized yesterday she isn't
l-e-a-r-n-i-n-g what she's been taught. I told her that she just swings and throws the ball down the lane, but bowling is more than that. She needs to throw the ball in a straight line to knock down the most pins. I told her that she doesn't listen and just keeps doing the same thing over and over. Today, I noticed her focusing on her thumb, trying to keep it straight and she did so much better!

We're so proud of her!

(Sorry for the blurry pictures. Diana brought her digital SLR but the battery was dead. I used Beth's new camera, but obviously we don't have the settings right.)

We think she was texting Sharaya, but we didn't know she knew how to text!

This was one of the 4 strikes she got today!

Receiving her silver medal.

WOW, isn't it funny how we teach our kids something over and over again - and they only use this new skill when they want to!
