Catch the Moment 2018 ~ Week 35

Luckily, we had our family for a few more days, and got to spend most of the week with them. Here are a bunch of photos from our outings and fun together!

Mon, Aug 27 ~ Monday, we decided to go bowling! It was a lot of fun. Homer had a great time and even got a strike!

Allister really loved it, too. He seemed so excited to carry the bowling balls, and after he threw one, he’d go back to the ball return and excitedly announce which one he would choose next. “Now, the red one!”

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 23

Mon, June 04 ~ I had asked Homer to participate in a kids’ writing contest, the kid version of the one I love participating in called LJ Idol. He was not interested at first. After asking daily for a few days and always getting similar reluctance, I finally said, “I mean, you never know, maybe if you finish all the weeks, you might even get a prize. And it’s only 4 weeks! So 4 stories. I think you’ll enjoy it.”

He said, “Really? A prize? Like a banana split all to myself???”

“Uhm… Yeah, sure!” I said.

He did say it was more fun than he thought it would be, so maybe he took away at least a fraction of the love for writing that he has always had for banana splits!
Good job writing all 4 stories, Homer!
