The Way of the Hand and the Foot….

“Grace, what is Tae Kwon Do?” the judge asked. Grace shyly replied, “The way of the hand and the foot.”

Grace passed her first round of testing in Tae Kwon Do! I was so proud of her…she really loves going to her “Do” classes as she calls them. I love it because it is good exercise and emphasizes building character traits such as listening, respect, and following directions. The classes are very good for children like Grace who need structure and are visual learners.

Her caregiver Jen takes her to classes and told us that she is impressed with how Grace is not only picking up the movements, but also that she is a great encourager to the others in the class. That’s what makes me most proud–when one of my children are kind or encouraging to others!

Here is my little Tae Kwon Do girl with her instructor Kelly (who is also an excellent occupational therapist in “real” life):

Way to go big sister Grace! Love, Mama
