(Salvatore is in the top right corner of the class)
Salvatore started karate classes a few weeks ago and he loves it! He only has one more class left, but he has learned a lot. He really makes us all so proud with what he loves to do and is willing to try. His coordination came in handy for certain skills, but there were others that he has to practice. And it was obvious that he does not go to school yet because he did not know how to line up or go to the end of the line.
The karate studio is about 3/4 mile from the house, so we load up the double stroller and walk. It is a wonderful way to connect with my kids after work. We talk about the cars, trees, airplanes, and stores along the way.
All of the parents sat around silently and watched...until it was time to do jumping jacks. We all laughed so hard each time, we were wiping our eyes. I am looking forward to many more ways in which I can support and cheer for Salvatore as he pursues his interests and hobbies.
