Today I get the pleasure of traveling through Washington, DC, on my way to a bowling tournament in Maryland. We don’t usually have to go through DC to get to Maryland, but there’s this one little tail of the MD that’s easiest to reach by heading straight through the nation’s capital.
My sixteen-year-old son could take or leave the tournaments. As a homeschooling mom, though, I made a choice to encourage (i.e. force) him to participate in a set number of with-kids-your-own-age activities each year, and bowling is one of those activities. He’s in a weekly youth league that runs the length of the school year, and he does 2-3 tournaments in addition. Youth tournaments are generally a Saturday/Sunday affair. Something about kids being in school on weekdays. Whatever.
It keeps us out of church a couple times/year, but I don’t swim in guilt over it. My son enjoys his youth group and would rather have all his tournaments on Saturday so he could be in church on Sunday. As long as he has that attitude, we’re golden.
So what are you up to today? Any exciting plans? (I know, I know. How could you possibly compare with me? Bowling is as exciting as it gets!)
Wishing y’all a day of blessing and grace!
