That's right - Brian, our very own Bolingbrook High School bowling coach, took his 3 year old team to State Championships for bowling. It took place in O'Fallon. They scored the 2nd highest series (3 games) ever in state. GO RAIDERS!! I watched the games online - pressing refresh every couples minutes to get the real time progression of the games.And, I must admit- although I have NEVER EVER EVER EVER watched nor cared to watch the Superbowl - I am watching this year. No I am not being pressured, bullied, coerced or hypnotized - I am watching VERY EXCITEDLY of my own free will and choice. GO BEARS!!! We actually have a friend on the team - Gabe Reid - he lived upstairs from us at BYU.
OTHER NEWS - it looks like our Mommy Tummy Class: The Tupler Technique will be expanding to the Orland Park Park District most likely at the HUGE GIGANTIC 3 STORY SPORTS COMPLEX. We will go in as independant contractors most likely - and get a nice hefty sum for the 1 hour a week that we teach. I am really excited - I feel this will reach out to many more young moms - and Orland Park demographics tend to be more financially stable so people can afford things like taking classes, gyms, etc. It took me like a YEAR to finally make the call to them - it has been in my palm pilot SERIOUSLY for 9 months - thats so embarrassing. I had that item of business to repeat everyday and I procrastinated every day. So anyway, we went out to celebrate at - where else? - TEXAS ROADHOUSE!!! HEE-HAW!
