Monday, Monday

Mom finished making her soup today. The house smelled really good all day. Mom and dad had it for dinner. The boy had some of the chicken for lunch. After lunch, Mr. Karate came over to help the boy with his karate. Even though he is a candidate, (ready to take the black belt exams) the boy is going to take a test seeing if he is really ready to take the black belt exams. The boy's teacher explained it well. He said that some of the students started slacking off when they made candidate, so he was going to test them to make sure they were really ready.

Here are the boy and Mr. Karate in mom's kitchen.

Mr. Karate is an excellent teacher, and mom was happy he showed up because he and the boy have a special bond and that makes it easier for Mr. Karate to teach the boy and for mom to be mom.

Here they are doing a technique called "Unfurling Lance." It is a knife technique.

And one of mom's favorites.

She loves this move at the end. You scoop kick their groin, claw the face and then come back down with a right hand sword to the side of the neck, pivot on the left foot and side kick the side of their right knee. It is really GREAT!

Here are Lucky and I, very unimpressed, watching them practice.

Ho hum. Lucky sleeps through it all and I only pay attention because, well, because mom is.

The boy's test is December 18th, so mom and the boy have a lot of practising to do. That means Lucky and I have a lot of sleeping to do. I guess we can manage.

Oh I hope you can sleep that much. Sometimes it is hard to sleep when you know you have to.

Wow, that's a big kitchen! You've got to give us a close up of those cool cabinets, and an explanation of how they are so cool. Great job the Boy and Mr. Karate. Go kick some alien butt!

Hi girls,
Wow, that karate sure looks fun. I don't know how you could just sit back and watch them... I would have been all over it, jumping around and trying to play with them. I can't sit still when other people are moving around!
Love Clover xo
P.S. Good luck to the boy!

My Daddy does some martial arts things too! He started with Aikido and now is into Sambo. I'm with Clover, though, I like to practice with Daddy as well (although he tells me to he doesn't need my help).

Wow! That is cool! Two beans moving in unison :) But I agree Roxy,them doing their own thing is not exciting for us to watch,especially when the house smells like chicken soup!!!!
Hope they do well though!
You look a little bored.You need to go break up practise and demand some "me time"
