Karate and More

Ristow sure knows how to make a Mom proud. Tonight he received his Jr Orange Belt in Karate. He is really enjoying it and is doing really well. I am so excited that he has found something that he can get into. Now comes the head gear and the sparring, should be interesting ;)

Now is when I take a moment and brag, now I know I kind of just did that, but Ristow is just so smart and I am amazed by him just about on a daily basis. (Between all of the ridiculous knock knock jokes that don't make any sense, of course)
He is doing above and beyond his kindergarten work and is reading, spelling and doing math wonderfully. He asks for more worksheets for me to print out for him to do. It is fun to watch his little brain work.
Tomorrow he gets to go to the State Capitol Building for his school field trip and he is super excited, mostly because he gets to brag that his Poppy built 70 of the windows for the Capitol Building but also because it is just cool. The most interesting place I got to go on a field trip was to the water treatment plant. ;)
I can't wait to hear how it goes and what new ideas it creates in Ristow's mind. I am sure it won't disappoint ;)
