the karate kid

Brian and I always vowed that if we ever had children, they would take karate. This revelation came after watching a bunch of little kids expending all of their energy while we went to watch a friend practice karate a number of years ago.

With much apprehension and even a few tears in anticipation of, Jacob had his first karate lesson this evening at Joe Goss Karate. Jacob takes a while to warm up to situations in general, so this was no different. He was all freaked out about going and has been talking about it for days now. But, once we got there and all of the kids started to arrive, I knew everything was going to go well. After the lesson was over, he came out to the waiting room and proclaimed “I love karate!”

I knew he would.
