Even though, for months, the boys had been talking about wanting one – they were not expecting to get a Ping-Pong Table for Christmas. That’s why it was so much fun to surprise them with it this year!
(Santa gets great deals on used items at Craig’s List sometimes…) :)
This has been so much fun for all of us. I hadn’t played ping-pong since I was a teenager at camp…or maybe since hanging out in the college “student center” as a freshman. Still though, I’m happy to report that I can still hold my own with some of my boys. I haven’t taken on Matt yet however…
Oh, and it’s probably not a good idea to ask me a question (such as, “Mom, what’s for breakfast tomorrow?”) when I’m in the middle of a match. I’m not good enough yet to simultaneously get my paddle on the ball while saying the word “muffins”. Maybe I’ll be that good eventually. :)
We put our new table up in our “game room” – the room that was built above what used to be a garage sometime during the 100+ year lifetime of this house. That room is perfect for our boys and their friends to play and make a mess. Now that we have the ping-pong table, that room is seeing even more traffic!
In just a short time, we are already seeing the blessings of having a ping-pong table. Yay God for giving us great deals and even better ways to spend time together!
