At the beginning of the year, Nathan and some friends opened an Indonesian martial arts school. He teaches there two nights a week and Jacob and Ellie get to train there for free. It is definitely a win/win situation for our family because Nathan gets to do something he loves while the kids can get rid of some of their extra energy.
When we asked Jacob what he wanted to do for his birthday party, his immediate response was to have a party at Aegis. The school had never done anything like this before, but they were willing to give it a go. Nathan and Kim did an excellent job instructing the kids during the party. We could tell that everyone had a great time and they probably will sleep really well tonight.During the party, the kids did an obstacle course, learned some martial arts moves, and played "roller ball tag".
I love this picture...you can almost hear his laughter!
It's not a party without food. We had veggies, cheeseballs, Gatorade, and of course, cupcakes and ice cream.
Time for presents
