My d'Artagnan!

Cole absolutely LOVES fencing!

He is very serious, asks a ton of questions and according to his instructors, is very willing to learn and has come a long way in just two days. There are only 5 kids in the camp and two instructors. He's getting plenty of attention!

Today when I collected him at lunch he was tired, sweaty and drank a whole 500mL bottle of water. He goes through a whole hockey game and doesn't drink that much water. He had a huge smile on his face and couldn't stop talking about grips and lunges and stances and blades. Looks like I'm going to have to learn a bit about fencing, too!

If you're local and interested, the Canadian Fencing Academy can be found here: clicky.

I'm thinking the next book Cole is going to have to read is The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas. The original, unabridged version!

Dang it, he's so stinkin' cute!
What a beautiful smile your boy has :) Sounds like he's having a good old time with his new sport. I think your children just ooze sports talent!!! What DO you feed them?
