We’re in the final stretch before school starts. It’s fun seeing both kids deal with it in their own way. Malia is really looking forward to seeing her friends again. Max is a little more nervous since he loved his TK teacher. I know that Mrs. T’s son will be in the same class as him so he’ll be happy about that. And he has the same Kinder teacher that Malia had. Love having a little behind the scenes influence.
Malia will have a craaaazy schedule this year. Swim M-F, minimum 3 days a week. Hula 2x a week. Run club 2x a week. And gymnastics. I think gymnastics will be the one that eventually gets dropped. Swim is going to take up a lot of her time & energy.
Max has actually taken to boxing. We’ve kept him exposed to the gym & coach the last couple of weeks. Now that he’s comfortable, he’s a little more relaxed and ready to participate. It’s at the same gym where we take hula & the same boxing coach that I have. I don’t necessarily want him to spar, but it’s a great activity and gives him an outlet for his emotions. I hope to eventually transition him to Muay Thai so he can learn how to defend himself as well as build up his confidence.
