We enjoyed our first official day of Summer vacation. After Jovie's dance class we went on a little outing to one of Mikey's favorite places...the Dinosaur Park. We even met the Travis family for a picnic. It was such a nice day, and it felt good to get out of the house.
During the Summer I really wanted your brother and sister to have a lot of fun activities to do. Jovie already has dance class and tumbling, so she is pretty much set. Mikey was a bit more tricky. He is playing T-Ball (which he is loving!), but I still wanted something else for him so I signed him up for a Tae Kwon Do class that is being held by our city recreation department. His first class is tomorrow. At first he didn't seem to excited for it, but I realized that may have been my fault. Here's how the conversation went down...
"Mikey, do you want to do Tae Kwon Do this Summer?"
I must admit I was a little shocked, so I pressed the issue a little more. "Are you sure?"
"No, I don't want to."
This is when I realized that maybe he wasn't understanding me. "It's like Karate Mikey...you really don't want me to sign you up?"
Still a bit shocked. "Why not?"
"Because I don't know what Karate is"
Me with the lightbulb over my head "It's like Kung Fu"
Yep, sometimes I have to speak in his language. Wish him luck!
