Erika gets her brown belt

Erika got her brown belt today.  Feels like only yesterday that she started karate.  Elizabeth of course was there to cheer her on.

Swimming lessons

Matthew and Amelia have been taking Saturday morning swimming lessons which they have enjoyed very much aside from needing to be in the pool at 8am. Elizabeth was never awake before they left.

 

Both of them made significant progress; neither of them passed their levels.

Nora and Simon visit

Nora and Simon dropped in for a visit.  After lunch we popped over to the museum of Nature for the afternoon.  Much fun was had by all, although perhaps the most fun was had with the giant bug that the kids spent ages pretending to be eaten by.  All too soon it was time to say goodbye until next time.

Stripes

Erika's going to be a brown belt! This is amusing because she'd asked sensei Nick what she needed to be working on and he was saying just to perfect her moves (but that she needed to wait because he didn't want to rush her through). But then he felt bad about holding her back for no reason so stripes it was! Looking like we'll have a second black belt in the family June 2021!

Acro practice

The joke around here is that Elizabeth probably spends half of her life upside down. While this might be a slight exaggeration, she definitely spends a lot of time doing handstands and pushups.

 

Her latest amusement is perfecting her one-handed and no hand handstand. She's also recently started doing handstand pushups. As one does.
