new kids, great training, coming soon

I’m so glad I get off at 4:00 on Sundays now adays. I can’t say enough how grateful I am about that. (after having to work from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM back to back lessons with no break except chowing lunch, both Saturday and Sunday for 6 years.

Anyway, yesterday I had some great lessons. This girl who never smiles smiled a few times. THen I did a new kids assessment for this group of really young ones. I think they’ll sign up for lessons! 😀 They were SO CUTE. I just wanted to HUG AND SQUEEZE the little boy, even though he wasn’t cooperating. I think his laugh will charm the other teachers into forgiveness, as well. Haha Near the end of the lesson, we were doing coloring. I just had them color the fruit the appropriate colors, and he laughed and PURPOSELY colored the apple yellow, and then grapes green, and then bananas red, and then started scribbling on the cashier-bear’s face. XD I was like, “….that’s not right, but you’re so cute, you can do what you want.”

Then I tried to have him color this “A is for APPLE” letter paper, and he said, “I don’t want it!” : 😀 😀 😀 But I needed him to color it so his parents could see that we taught the ABCs. f^.^;;; So the girl dutifully colored, and I got a pink colored pencil and said to the boy, “LOOK! I’m coloring your WORM PINK!!! BAHAHA!” (it was sticking out of the apple) and did it, and the girl was like “NOOOOOOOOOOOO the worm! Here, I’ll color yours for you!” and then all of a sudden he was all interested and started wrestling with her for it back.

XD I think…. I had entirely too much fun in that class. I hope they sign up.

Then I went to Ground Slam and took BJ’s class. He taught some SUPER INCREDIBLY USEFUL STUFF related to taking the back and getting out of it. Like….I wrote it down and need to drill it every day. I really love his class. I didn’t want to spar boxing, though….I wanted MMA, but he’s the boss, and it was probably better for me anyway.

I slept the night!!! 😀 Time for another day at work! Man those kids made my day yesterday….I’m still in a super good mood. And then knee feels great. I’m ready. Well, getting there. 🙂 Gotta increase my stamina a little bit more. And now I’m at about 134 lbs.

Big news coming soon.…
