I'm Pretty Pleased
« on: September 23, 2007, 08:16:47 PM »

Yesterday, my church had it's fall family time (or as it's formally called, "Fabulously Fantastic Family Fall Festival").  There are different categories to enter (breads, chili, baked goods, crafts) if you so choose, and there's time for fellowship, food, & games.

And it was a lot of fun. Grin  Kev, my cousin Kyle, Chelsea & Garrett were all there with me, and I'm sure they enjoyed it, too.  Chelsea and I tried to give the unicycles a try Cool, but, for the life of me, I couldn't convince Kev to (don't know why, he loves to bike and do a lot of crazy stunts  Scratches Head).  Kev and I won the egg toss. Cheesy  And while Kev and Ky took the little ones to play on the playground, my team one the playdoh sculture contest. Smiley  After that is was time for volleyball.  We didn't keep score for that, but I think I could probably tell you who won.  (Kinda like golf, you may not be adding up your scorecard, but you still have a pretty good estimate if you bother to think about it for half a second.)  Then it was time to eat, if you wanted to.  Since we ate before we left, we decided to chat and play more with the little ones.  (Oh, yeah, there was a "free time" [please excuse the kindergarten terminology Wink] at the beginning, too.)

Okay, so if you've read this far, you're probably wondering when I'm going to get to the part that I'm pleased about.

Well, I like to enter the craft category.  So I thought I'd enter Garrett's teddy bear, Bear Bear, and the doll I made for Chelsea, Greta, as a set.  And that's exactly what I did.  That is, after I gained Chelsea and Garrett's permission, which they were actually more hesitant than I thought they would be (especially when I told them that they'd have to have a sleep-over party at church the night before - I thought Chelsea would wash the house away with tears, but it was nice to know just how special they are to the kids).  Chelsea entered a clay owl, and Garrett entered a self-portrait of himself.  Had I known that photography was a craft, I'm sure Kev and/or I would have entered a pic.

In the 0-12 year-old group, Garrett received "honorable mention", and Chelsea received 2nd. Cool Cool Cool  Oh, and Bear Bear and Greta brought home a nice blue ribbon. Smiley

Nice!

As a soccer player, martial artist, and golfer I could have added........  board breaking?

Bah - it impressed the ladies back in the day anyway.

Thanks!

Board breaking?  That's kewl! Cool  I attempted to do that once...  My lack of skill came to full realization on the downward motion of the hand, and I didn't fully follow through.  Been awhile since, I've seen someone who could do that.

Its not that hard.. the first board anyway  Wink

The talent is being able to do it over and over again without getting hurt.  But as Miyagi said... 'board no hit back'.

Are you still trying to impress Iggle? I thought she already turned down your proposal.

Instead of showing her how tough you are, you might want to try serenading her with this song:

Rick's not tough.  His idea of breaking boards is running into them with golf carts.   Devil

Congrats EAGLE.  Glad to hear there were some bears which performed well this weekend.

Always (now that its a 'thing' I guess) - and yes, she did  Cry

There's always hope for me... I'm too old for her, an accomplished sinner  Wink, and there's that core philosophical difference - but hey, Julia Roberts married Lyle Lovett.  Just sayin.

That may be was Miyagi said, but the board says to me, "Board no need hit to make hurt."  Wink

It's probably for the best that I didn't seriously try to.  Knowing me, I'd probably hit it the wrong way and hurt myself.  Or worse yet, break a nail! Shocked  (Actually, that never bothers me.  I couldn't care less about that.  Breaking a nail usually means I'm doing something fun. Cheesy)

Nope, for now, until someone who knows what they are doing can give me instructions, I'll just cut styrofoam into 2.

Thanks.  Yes, I do, and I enjoy it so much.  When I can get the right colors in the right thread, I'm going to be making this doily for my mom.
