Today everyone was getting ready for aiki class and Knox wandered in. I told him to tell Ms. Jill who won third place in the tournament this past weekend and Knox beamed and stabbed his own chest with a thumb and said, "I did." Then he made a muscle and showed her and he launched into a mostly indecipherable ramble about how the tournament went.
I am so excited about the potential these kids have. The confidence judo inspires in kids (and adults) will serve them well for the rest of their lives.
