E completed his first karate class. Despite my reservations (and 80s hang-ups... it was such a thing back then), it is such a good fit for him.
Parents were admitted to the classroom on the final day to observe the progress of the students. It was so fun to see him enthusiastically following directions and pouring his whole self into the exercises. The boys were not just allowed but encouraged to yell their loudest as they recited the poses. Making a LOT noise while following directions- what a concept!
I am of course, super proud of him for learning so quickly... but it's his sustained excitement, focus and total cooperation that totally amazed me.
