My Karate Kid

Alexa started karate this week and LOVES it. She earned her white belt the first class by reciting her name, address and phone number. She is on her way already to earning her stripes by already practicing and learning how to count to 10 in Japanese. I think she is a real natural and we are really excited that she has found something that she really enjoys. Alexa is pretty high energy ( which we love about her) and karate will give her an outlet to use her energy and also learn how to focus that energy more. She will go twice a week all summer and the plan is to continue once school starts once a week. I love watching her in class. I am proud that she has tried something new and as always, watching our little one blossom is pure joy.
Stay tuned for dance photos...the big recital is this weekend!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this photo!! So darling. My hope is that Georgea will take an interest in some sort of martial art one of these days. Go little Miss White Belt! We are proud of you!!

Awesome! I remember using that pose to fend off my older brother from attack! (although i had no insight to back it up so it generally failed :(~
But what a little vision Alexa makes. Now she looks like she knows what's behind those moves! And hey, so Chris Ibrahim's kids are in Tiny Tigers Taekwondo and guess who's in it with them?? Chris! She's not the Tinest of the Tigers but is earning her way up with them. Hmmmm... you've always looked good in could give it a go ;) Glad she is so enthusiastic - it shows! xo Kim

She is going to love it! Isabella just got her striped green belt and adores the sport. We are thrilled!

Alexa looks like she's having fun and she looks awful cute too.
