Pretty much a typical Monday for the most part. I did take son to meet grandma, at her request, to get his passport then we all headed over to the eyeglass shop/store to pick out frames for his new glasses. They should be here in about a week or two. Then, later that evening, was Martial Arts class for my son. This week, during the Sho-Tiger class, they worked on simple “take-downs”. I think he’d hate me saying this but he was completely “owned” by one of the girls he was matched against. In all fairness that girl is a lot more athletic then my son and is also a black belt, with the experience therein. It was all payback for the other girl he was matched against who, while at a higher belt level had significantly less strength — And before you start griping about how that’s unfair for the girl, Let me remind you that this is a Martial Arts/Self Defense class. These “kids” are learning to defend themselves against someone who could feasibly be stronger. Many of the girls in the Teen class are at an age where they may be (or may soon be) dating and might find themselves in a bad or awkward situation that they need to get out of. My son’s sensei feels that one of the most important things he can do is to give these kids the knowledge tools they need to have a chance at defending themselves should the unfortunate need ever arise.
The morning mainly consisted of working around the house, including office type work.
So that was pretty much my Monday. Hope yours was Marvelous. Here’s my question for the day?
It’s Taco Tuesday and National Avocado Day — So what do you say, Avocados on your Tacos?? Yay or Nay?
