We arrived at the new class very early and since it wasn't open yet we sat and listened to our book on CD. By the time we wandered in the class was just about to start. We discovered that the version of Tang So Do is a bit different from the version the boys are learning. About half-way through the class, Evan shamelessly announced to me that he HATED it. I was so bummed! Once class was over the instructor stopped to talk to myself and the boys and explained some of the differences in the two forms of karate and explained to the boys how she'd be working with them to fine tune their hand & foot movements to match their form. She assured them that they'd catch up in no time and that they do have a lot of fun. We left and walking out to the car, Ian was telling me that he really liked the new class, Alec told me he thought it was OK and would be fine once he adjusted, but Evan insisted he DID not like it at all. That left me pretty much torn about what to do. I figured we'd table our decision for a bit and just enjoy our day.

They were all rather reluctant to leave the beach and asked about "next" time already! What a wonderful day making memories with our family!
