My karate kid

Because we chose to forego any type of preschool or Mothers’ Day Out program this spring, we discussed enrolling Seth in some type of lesson, be it swim, gymnastics, or martial arts.  Karate ended up winning hands down, when the husband of our darling Miss Sara posted on his Facebook wall about an enrollment special he was running at his karate studio.

So, on Monday, we met with Dan to discuss the details, and we left with a gi.

And on Tuesday, Little Mister had his first one-on-one class with his instructor.

Have you ever seen anything so cute?!

Initially, Erin was content to watch from the sidelines, but as you can see from the last picture (I had to put the camera down to go chase her), she wants in on the action, too.

We are going to start twice-a-week classes next week.  I’m excited to get Seth involved, and for him to make some new friends.  And of course, there is the side benefit of getting to hang out with some of my best girls while their firstborns participate as well.

Here’s to a new experience for us all!
