Jupiter Bowl munchies and staying on track :)



It was 2:30pm, after lunch but not yet time for dinner. We hit the arcade at Jupiter Bowl for fun grub and a good time. The Lift Grill and Lounge, the restaurant serving the bowling alley, has a great menu with reasonable prices. We ordered some standard kiddie fare: Jupiter Fries, Sweet Potato Fries and Mac N Cheese (...and a glass of Riesling for me!). 
Above, Jupiter Fries $4, glass of Riesling $7. Below, Sweet Potato Fries $4.
Macaroni and Cheese, $6. The four girls shared two orders.
Happy Girls, kid food, loud Top 20 music playing....! Woohoo!
Miss Kraft, 1st grade teacher, sent home this poem on the first day of school. These friendly reminders (though TOTALLY cliché, I know!) help me stay on track...

Children Learn What They Live
by Dorothy Law Nolte

If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn. 
If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
If a child lives with fear, he learns to be apprehensive.
If a child lives with pity, he learns to feel sorry for himself.
If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
If a child lives with jealousy, he learns what envy is.
If a child lives with shame, he learns to feel guilty.

If a child lives with encouragement, he learns to be confident.
If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
If a child lives with praise, he learns to be appreciative.
If a child lives with acceptance, he learns to love.
If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
If a child lives with recognition, he learns that it is good to have a goal.
If a child lives with sharing, he learns about generosity.

If a child lives with honesty and fairness, he learns what truth and justice are.
If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith in him self and in those about him.
If a child lives with friendliness, he learns what the world is a nice place in which to live.
If you live with serenity, your child will live with peace of mind.

With what is your child living?
