* Archery Practice *
~ General with a recurve bow ~
This past week, Little Monkey had his first chance to try out the bows & arrows - something he has been very anxious to do!
The instructor did such a nice job working with him, and I could tell LM was feeling pretty "big" to be out there with all the other kids. :)
~ Rose with a compound bow ~
~ Peanut toe-ing the line ~
The two-hour class begins right at Peanut's nap time...so he has been a little bit of a mischief-maker during practice - especially since he would much rather be out on the floor having fun with his siblings. ;)
(After looking at this picture posted here, I just noticed that he's holding "the pink" bottle. I usually make a point only to let him use that one at home, lol! Can't believe his brothers let that one slip by...we were in a rush to get out the door that day! ;)
* Fencing Time! *
~ General all suited up in his fencing gear ~
~ and Rose....the smallest coat is still a little big on her! ~
Rose is a couple years younger than the usual starting-age for fencing, but the instructor was very kind & invited her to give it a try anyway! She likes it a lot, but is really hoping to take ballet lessons this fall, instead....
General, on the other hand, loves everything about this sport. (Right now, he can't decide which he likes better - fencing or soccer.....and that is saying a lot!)
Peanut was making me laugh as we watched General and Rose bounce and lunge through their drills....he really wanted to try, too. :)
There's only one class left in this session, but we were all excited to hear that they'll be starting a new session right away & going through the summer! My calendar is already beginning to fill up....I think our season of quietness is quickly blossoming into a new season of fun. :)
Have a blessed weekend, everyone!
