Making the Rounds

Tomorrow morning, we are packing up the boys and heading for Montana.

Keith spent his high school years in a small town in Western Montana, and his parents still live there.

And since we are moving in June, we don't know how long it is going to be before we make it up there again. So, we are going to spend the weekend with Keith's parents, meeting up with Keith's high school friends, and in a way saying good-bye.

It's a reminder of how far away we will actually be. No Jessop family camp-out. No alternating holidays. No more high school graduations. I'm going to miss it all.

On a happier note, I finally have a picture of my little karate student. I sure think he looks cute in his white outfit.

Looking strong!

(And Blaise insisted that if I was taking pictures of Roman and putting them on the compute, I had to take of picture of the pine cones we picked up on our walk together. So, here, to appease my little one.)

Roman is So Cute! If there is a good teacher, Karate can boost self confidence, inner stablility and self and other awareness, and gives permission for kids to defend themselves. This was a skill I would improve on if I could go back in time with my kids, inspite of the concern over physical violence. For us, the kid who did get those lessons seems the least likely to want to employ the art, since principles of honor were part of the lessons.
I hope you have a grand visit with friends and family!!
