Too much fun! This was Sophia and Avery’s first time ever to go bowling. With the bumpers up to avoid a gutter ball, the ball rolled s-l-o-w-l-y
down the lane.
Then we found a ramp for Sophia and Avery to use which really speeded up play! Afterwards we went to Sam’s Hof Brau for dinner, a restaurant that’s been around for 56 years.
For not bowling in decades, I was pretty happy with my 153 score. And one game seemed to be enough for everyone!
It’s always fun and delicious when Phyllis and I go to Merrilyn’s for afternoon cocktails.
The first 3 days of instruction take place in the classroom. I worked with Elle Steele. Four one-hour classes each day and packed with important information.
Yay for good friends like Linda and Ade!
In the afternoon, I went to a car show in Rio Linda’s Depot Park and the Community Center.
This ride was a total success! We did have a few hiccups, but Alyson Fox handled each situation quickly and efficiently. When we did our personal safety check, we discovered Louis’ helmet was not functional and we had no spare; sadly he couldn’t ride with us. Entering the roadway from the yogurt shop, climbing the short hill, making the left turn, and entering the trail all went perfectly. Here’s our whole group except for Alyson who rode “sweep” – the last rider.
We had three volunteer parent riders who came with us.
After another short climb it was time for a water break.
The train trestle was our turn-around point.
Time to head back.
Thank you to all the supportive parents!
The ride ended at 4:30, I loaded my bike and drove to Auburn on Hwy 49 to Auburn: see next post.
Another of my part-time jobs this month has been organizing teams of retired teachers to give the Fountas & Pinnell assessment to students in middle school who were on the brink of being reclassified as English fluent – a BIG goal of the English Learner Department in Twin Rivers Unified School District. Problem solving at school sites on testing days was also part of the job. Today, I stopped at Strauch Middle School to find a happy smooth-running operation. L-R (excluding students): Kathy Smith, Bev Ruby, Mike Wade.
