Get Your Bowl On....

Could you imagine not being able to do something that you once enjoyed but were unable to do now or thought you were unable to do? Until recently, it had been over 9 years since Robin had went bowling...9 years ago she lost her eyesight. What does losing her eyesight have to do with her not being able to bowl? Good question, I asked her the same thing! Once you become blind is there a document stating all of the things that you can no longer do??? Um no..so we're going bowling!!! We went out and had an awesome time...although Robin did get beat by her 9 yr old niece, Imani (no need to feel bad, Robin's game has always sucked, it's actually better now that she's blind) smooches, love you Robin!!! Anyway, Robin got familiar with where everything was and we counted how many steps she needed to take before she threw the ball, and after a couple of runs, girlfriend had it down and was doing her thing! She got a couple of spares, but it wasn't enough to keep up with Imani, that little one is competitive!
