Showing off his moves at Maya's birthday party in June.
Outside her trial ballet class in August.
We've settled on fall activities for both kids.
Guillermo will take Aikido. He will learn, among other things, how to "go from fast action to stillness quickly and respectfully when they 'sit like a rock' or 'stand like a tree.'" The class is once a week. No soccer. Maybe in the spring?
Maya will take ballet class once a week. Ballet? Yeah, I know. But she wants to and I'm not interested in signing her up for soccer yet. I'll wait another year or two. She took a trial ballet class last weekend and seemed to have a great time, but then had a breakdown on the way home. For the past two days, she's been asking to take a ballet class again. We'll try it for a month.
That's it. No overload. No pressure. Just enough as they ease into their new schools.
