July 1 and 2, 2018 – Great Smoky Mountains National Park to Mequon, Wisconsin

We did not leave Big Creek until after 3:00 pm but drove all the way to Madison, GA and spent the night at the Cracker Barrel.  We arrived at Daughter Jennifer’s house just in time to go watch Owen and Cam at Tae Kwon Do class.  It was one of the most entertaining evenings we’ve had in ages!

You know I took almost two hundred pictures.  Before the class started, the children had some activities.  Hurdles:

Cam actually slid over them most of the time.  At four, he is not exactly leaping yet.

Owen, on the other hand, at six, leaped over them easily.

The children put away the hurdles when the games were over.

They did some stretches.  Owen noticed me taking pictures.

Cam kept an eye on his older brother to learn what to do next.

All ages and abilities were in the same class.  The more advanced ones were up front and the newest were in the back. Son-in-Love George is in the front row, the first person next to the children.  They just started this class a few weeks ago, after Owen won a free class at some event.  They signed up after the first lesson

George looked in fine form in my opinion.

In this exercise, the children were scampering sideways monkey-style across the room and back.  Owen was fast.

Cam was hilarious. His hopping was even funnier.

An instructor used Owen to demonstrate how to fend off an attacker.

They did several exercises pushing an arm out of the way.

Here, I caught both boys kicking at the same time.

Andy and I took a short walk when we got back home.
