Emilie came to visit us this week, we had a blast! She helped me train in the mornings; we worked out early and she went back to bed as I went to work. We went over Kata, Tai Ho Jitsu, and self-defense. I have a test coming up on June 20, so I’ve been preparing for that.
We also played Catan. She beat me her very first time playing, I don’t think she could have had a better hand!
Throughout the week she also hit a fair number of malls, I’m thinking of at least four, but she only bought one top that was on sale, so that is pretty good (the rest went on her birthday list).
We ate at home, but also dinned out quite a bit. We went out for sushi, aged-steak, and hit several local dives throughout the week. We made our way to St. Paul on Saturday had brunch and visited with Matt, Mandy and Lucas. After we ate, we spent some time at the zoo as a group, that was fun (the weather was gorgeous).
She’s on her way back to Illinois on the train now. I didn’t think they would make it, they left here pretty late, but Jantina reports that she is safely on her way home. We had a great time.
