Thing Three

Thing Three has started karate. I can't remember if I said that already or not. He had his two mini lessons and has joined the regular class. A big part of martial arts is continual growth in strength and knowledge. Here they are strengthening their bodies with jumping jacks:
I'm sure having older siblings also in karate has helped with his stance as he can watch them in their class, but check out that form. Hehe!

Pushups help with, "getting stronger, Sir!" I love that they call that back to him when he says, "down for pushups" or "down for situps"... how come they don't respond with, "growing character, Ma'am" when I tell them, "time to clean"?

This is a knife hand something or other, I think...

All in all, he is fun to watch and HE is having fun. He was really nervous and in tears before his first lesson, but warmed up well and enthusiastically tackled everything he was presented. He was so excited to be able to join the big class! I can't wait for him to get his gi, or uniform, because then he'll really feel like he's part of the crew.
If you come visit, we'll have to take you to class. Good, clean entertainment. ;)
