Day #2 of Summer (officially)

Today is the first Friday of summer break. It is technically our second full day of Summer Break.

It started out to be a fun day. Me and my brothers were playing with dominoes and making robots and planes with Legos. Just before lunch mom told us if we got all of our chores done and ate, that we would go bowling. So we got to it.

After lunch we loaded up in the car and went to Thunder Alley Family Center, it has bowling, putt putt, batting cages, etc.. I wasn't sure what to think about it at first. We had gone bowling before but it was at a different place. I liked the shoes though. They were cool.

I did okay by myself the first couple of turns but then the ball got heavy and I needed help. (mom note - Benji has hypotonia and sensory integration disorder, not sure which was being the problem with the bowling. The ball was a 6lb jr ball.) After the first game I was pretty wore out but mom said we had another game to play. I was more or less done though and started having problems sitting still while waiting my turn. I was wanting to through myself on the floor and climb around on the tables. Mom took it all in stride though, she gave me big hugs and rubbed my back some. She even let me get some popcorn.

I did decide that I like bowling, I just don't like the waiting. (mom note - Benji has five siblings and the first game took FOREVER to get done.) I hope next time we go that maybe we can eat and maybe bring some friends. Or maybe go in the arcade.

After bowling we got back home to pick up one of my sister's friends and then we went to my Uncle's house. We went there to celebrate Memorial Day. Mom said we celebrate it to honor those that protect our country. And that my papa, two of my uncle's and two of my cousins have all been or are in the military.

I am having a hard time settling down though. I wore my hug vest while at my uncle's because mom said the hugs should calm me down. They did, but I didn't want to calm down. But now it's bed time so I guess I have to. Good Night. :)
