So my youngest daughter went to fencing camp last week. She had such a wonderful time that she bugged me all weekend to remember that the Fencing Club Open Lessons are on Monday nights. She was all ready to continue her career as a fencing fool.
The amazing thing is that she has convinced her couch potato older sister to join her at fencing! They went to their first open lesson tonight. Older sister was in the beginners class and younger sister was in the advanced class because of fencing camp.
Older sister really enjoyed it and is looking forward to actually getting to "suit up", since this week the beginners just worked on footwork and didn't put on fencing gear.
Younger sister was the youngest and smallest one in the advanced class, but kept up with everyone else in all the drills, and was really sad when the class was over.
The instructor told older sister that she had to keep up with the footwork practice so that she wouldn't get sore, and younger sister is all about making sure that they remember to practice every day. As we were driving home younger sister said "I can't wait till next Monday!"
I think they have found a sport that they really like. Praise God.
