Two Trained Killers

Liz has always been athletic. If she wants to be able to do something she’ll practice. I used to take her to open gym at the Y. She saw a girl lift herself up on the bar and spin around. She wanted to do that and she practiced until she could. She wants to shoot baskets so she’ll practice. Her athleticism intrigues me since neither I nor my husband have any. We assume Lizzy’s came from my brother. But regardless of where it comes from, I don’t want to waste it. So, I asked her if she wanted to take gymnastics or dance. No, she wanted karate -- yea, typical Lizzy.

I finally signed Liz and Jake up for Tae Kwon Do a couple of months ago. It’s really cool to see the progress in both of them. They both want their black belts. Fair warning, don’t mess with them. A couple of weeks ago my husband startled Lizzy, she immediately took a fighting stance. She’s 45 inches tall and less than 50 lbs. but don’t even think about messing with her! She will take you down.

Seems to me there was this little red headed girl that was a pretty good grappler.

Oh, well maybe she did get fighting skills from me.
