Showing off the kids: Jacob's Taiko and Sarah's Wrestling
Every now and then I can't help but show off what my kids do. Jacob has gotten into Taiko drumming (a Japanese form of drumming). He has one of the best teachers around (Kaoru Watanabe, formerly of the Kodo drummers) and has taken to it very well. This isn't Jacob's best performance of this piece (Miyake) but it isn't bad...hell better than I can do!
(one of the best things is that when he does mess up halfway through he keeps on playing...a key skill as a performer!)
Meanwhile, Sarah kicks ass on her High School Wrestling team: (she wins this match!)
Okay enough bragging. Back to your regularly scheduled New York politics.
