If I have my way, my say, Sammy won’t be the only one taking a class teaching poise and grace. I hope to, around that same time if not sooner, get the boys in martial arts.
I don’t have a specific form in mind. I’ll go with what impresses me, has a class schedule we can get to, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg to attend.
Yes, I know all 3 kids in something has me looking at 200$, or so, a month.
My hope is that martial arts will teach the boys self-discipline, grace, coordination, focus, and listening skills. And with it a sense of inner strength and self value.
Lucas, whom is set to be home schooled, will also find himself around other kids at least once a week. I can’t stress how important this is. When he is around other kids, as I saw today on a playdate I set up for him, he still parallel plays like his sister does. Yet when his brother is finally home from a day at school, he is so grateful to finally have someone to play with. The kid boggles me. Either way, though, I do see that if he isn’t in school he won’t learn how to manage social interaction, whether he misses it or not.
They both could use the self-discipline.
Now to free up about 200$ a month from my budget. I am, however, working on this. I’m just not sure to what success.
Only time will tell.
