Working hard

This morning, we met our friend Julie and her daughter Gilana for brunch.  Gilana is about 18 months old and super cute.  I didn’t have my camera with me so I didn’t get any pictures, but we had a really nice brunch.  It was great to catch up.  We came home and rested – this fog here can kill ya!  At around 2:30, we headed over to the gym.  Ella was very excited for her second taekwondo class and was super excited to get her uniform.  When Steven, her teacher gave her her uniform, she was so happy!  We didn’t stay for the class this time.  Sunny worked out and I played racquetball.  I did manage to catch the last 25 minutes or so.  When I got down to the class, they were all running around in a big circle – the teacher came over to me and told me that the class was in trouble – not Ella, but all the yellow belt students.  He said that they would not stop talking so they had to do laps.  Ella told him that she wanted to do laps too and she was tearing around the room, laughing and giggling and running like crazy.  She also attempted to do a few push ups when Steven instructed them to do 10 push ups.  Her kicks are looking a little better.  She is just so confident there, even with kids who she doesn’t know.  The kids are really sweet and they take care of her.  She is the youngest by about a year.  We ended up at the Public House for dinner tonight and watched the Giants lose.  We need them to start winning every game now…we want baseball in October (when it will hopefully be warm).139.jpg Ella in her uniform.229.jpg Sweet Ella with 2 of the other kids in her class.317.jpg Look at the focus.414.jpg Steven is a great teacher and really wonderful with Ella.513.jpg I almost caught the kick!612.jpg Fantastic class.Now for a sweet video.

    I love Ella’s focus. The instructor seems kind and firm; good combination. Jamie and Milo spent the night here. It’s great having them over. Love you. Mom
