Taekwondo HA!

G has been taking Taekwondo classes for about six months.  His instructor is really great with kids and has some serious patience.  I only know this from the sparring and belting classes where we have met a broader spectrum of his students.

Luckily for G he attends a class that is held mid day for the Homeschooling community and his classmates are stellar learners.

This photo was taken after testing and he will get his Yellow Belt on Tuesday, tomorrow.

CBird has been in dance class for about 4 weeks.   Once a week she gets to do her own thing and she is loving it.  We will be trying to enroll her in ballet this fall.  Yea!

C-Bird is a Fish

videoBaby girl is Jumping from the side of the pool into 5 ft and swimming from mom to dad in the "deepness". Also swimming from Mom to side of the pool at 5 ft and pulling herself out. So proud... and terrified.

G Man is user friendly at the pool already.  I still keep an eye on him but he can handle himself almost completely.  The middle of the pool should have something floating in it just in case and he is good to go.

Now I have to really watch my girl and make sure that she knows her limits and that I'm real close when she wants to get into deeper water.  Barely a month ago she cried if anyone tried to take her into deeper water, and she couldn't bare to be in anything deeper than her belly button. Now she is a goggle wearing underwater swimming fish!

(No swimmies, life jackets, puddle jumpers or floaties were used in the making of this memory.)
