Logan

Logan’s Progress Year to Date | 2016

Roughly a year ago I attended the open day of the primary school Logan currently attends.  I remember wondering whether it was the right decision, in my heart I was please and excited.  But the thought of moving Logan from one school to another was a concern, I kept asking myself if he would settle.

Cartwheels and Capoeira

There is nothing like a work out to make you feel better!  I have never experienced any kind of sport or exercise that gives me the thrill I get from practicing Capoeira. Logan and I started Capoeira at the beginning of August.  We I chose Capoeira for a couple of reasons. (1) I wanted to…
