Karate Kid

We recently enrolled Seth at the Charles June Karate Institute.

We are hoping to utilize their after-school program when Seth begins Kindergarten in the fall.  He is currently enrolled in the Little Dragons program, and it is a great class full of little boys and girls exerting their energy.
Sometimes though, when students do not want to cooperate and pay attention, Sensei Michelle will sit them out and/or make them do extra push-ups.  Seth has had to do this many times, but we do know that he is getting something out of this class.  He goes around the house chanting and showing off his karate moves.   At the end of each class, he gets a dragon stamp on his foot if he has done a good job.   I look forward to him wanting to test for a different level--we are not there yet, but we are working towards that.

32 Weeks

Good grief, I can't believe we are at this point in the pregnancy!  Time is just moving so much faster this time.  My belly seemed to have popped out after Christmas--all that good cooking--and I have continued to 'blossom' as a co-worker put it recently!  I guess it is time for that to happen considering I am about 7 weeks or so (I hope) from delivery.
Baby girl is moving a lot more these days....her movements have progressed from little flutters to strong punches and kicks.  She is especially active early in the morning and at night.  We do not have a name yet, but we are working on it.  We hope to get the car seat, the bassinet, the bouncer, and the swing from the attic either this weekend or next.  We continue to work on the front bedroom, little by little in order to get it looking like a baby's room--it's just tough to give up space you have become so used to!   Enter creative storage solutions.  I feel like I am in full nesting mode, I just do not have the energy to 'nest' like I want to!  I am not too worried though because I know it will all fall into place.
