So, last night we turned out the lights, all snuggled on the couch and watched 'Forbidden Kingdom' with Jackie Chan and Jet Li. What fun.
J14 was fascinated. Of course, she realized that there were lots of special effects, but she ended up wanting to learn to fight with a staff. Yeah, she's like that- into weaponry, OLD weaponry. I told her to ask her Master if he would teach her sometime. She has a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and she and V are taking Kum Do (Korean sword fighting). They have progressed to the point where they will need to buy armor soon - a big EEEK right now because armor and uniforms for the two of them will cost about $700. But they are really enjoying it. V was a fencer in his younger days and having had a desk job it is good for him to have something physical that he really likes. It is also a great Dad/Daughter bonding event that I wouldn't deny them. So, we'll figure out how to make that work when the time comes.
J14 is also THRILLED to have her internet access back. I noticed this morning that she posted a new entry on her blog. She has come up with some good goals for the year.
Back to the grind. More laundry beckons. I can only fit 3 loads on the lines in the basement at a time so it takes a long time to get through the backlog. But school and work start back tomorrow.
I'll try to post challenge updates later.
