Zeke is a Yellow Belt!

Zeke has been doing Jujitsu since January at a place up here called Mountain Storm and last week he earned his first promotion.  He is really enjoying it and likes the opportunity to 'move up' the ranks--he really does well when he has something to work toward that is tangible.  It's really helping with gross motor control also--last month he fell down in our backyard and immediately tucked in like he's been taught in jujitsu.  He popped up and said, "Mom, I didn't get hurt cause I rolled like I'm supposed to!"  There is still a lot to learn, of course... but I think this is something we'll keep in the mix.  Even Emmy has asked to do this next year instead of gymnastics!
