Go, Girls' Team!

Alexandra is taking karate and the girls are definitely the minority. Today, they did a mini-tournament of sword and shield fighting. They divided the kids by ages and so Alexandra was in the 5's, 6's, and 7's. There were a total of 11 boys and 1 girl - her!

She ended up finishing 2nd place!!! The sensei is always saying "Go, Girls' Team!" and we were so proud of how she represented the girls' team... and just proud of her! I was disappointed that they only gave a prize to the first place, but we'll always know she fought in the championship round and came in 2nd!!!

Go, Girls' Team!!! Go, Alexandra!!!

Glad to hear Alex is enjoying Karate, Matthew loves karate too, and yes there are very few girls in it. I like the discipline of it and that it is an excerise that is in air conditioning :)
