Not only were there the notes he had written out, he also drew pictures of him giving me the note.... and saying yes, of course.
A couple of weekends ago, the girls spend the weekend with Grammy. Derek, Jack, and I were so productive in cleaning and organizing--it was wonderful! As a reward for all of Jackson's hard work and an opportunity to spend some quality time with just him, we took him bowling. He was thrilled.
He had a shot-put inspired bowling technique that was quite humorous, but it seemed to be effective! He even bowled a strike without even using the bumpers. I managed to get it on video, too.
Derek won both games and Jack came in second. I am just undoubtedly a very inconsistent and therefore terrible at accumulating points in bowling (like, following up two strikes with two gutter balls). We had a ton of fun. Jackson still asks me to go bowling at least twice each week, but I haven't received any letters in awhile. :)
