Carson, CO[/caption] OK, so many of you already know that my wife is pregnant and is currently at 35 weeks. The baby seems to be doing great so far, with a him doing a lot of kicks and punches inside Susan's belly -- sometimes even stopping her in her tracks! With that said, starting tomorrow we will be going to see the doctor every week until she either delivers OR is scheduled to deliver. Our due date is August 22nd. Bu, as many of you know, babies come when they feel like it. As I've been stating in classes the past few weeks, I am currently on "baby call" -- meaning when I get a special phone call or text from Susan, it's time to go. Even if classes are going on, we all need to scramble. If you don't know, this is our first child, so it's a very exciting and emotional time for us, and we are really looking forward to this amazing opportunity in starting our family. During the summer, I usually take 1 week off for personal vacation, as I need time to unwind and rejuvenate. However, this year will be different. Since I haven't taken a vacation yet, after my wife delivers, I will be taking 1 week off from teaching, in order to help Susan with our new son, and get in a routine (if that even exists). If you are not following The Dojo of Karate on Facebook, you will not know what's going on with the delivery and vacation time. By simply "liking" our business page will allow you to get updated with everything about our Karate school closures, updates, and events. So, get with the Social Media world and follow us on Facebook. It will also make Mark Zuckerberg happy.
