The Life & Times - Kung Fu Drake

We just recently started Meredith in Karate lessons.  We hope she learns discipline, coordination, respect, and some form of self defense.  She loves it, so much that she has been giving lessons to Drake and some of the kids from The Village.

Drake has picked up a lot of the nuances.  One of Meredith's and Drake's favorite movies is Mulan, the story of a young chinese girl who goes to war disguised as a boy to save her aged and crippled father from conscription.  There is a song where the captain tells the men that he'll make a man out of them.  Drake really likes that song...alot.  He memorized the first verse and sings it to anyone who cares to listen.  We convinced him to do it on video.  Hope you enjoy as much as we do:-)

Translation:
Let's get down to business,
To defeat...the Huns.
Did they send me daughters
When I asked...for sons?
You're the saddest bunch I've ever met
And you haven't got a clue
Mister, I'll
Make a man
Out of You!

  2. Yes, I will have to agree, that is about the cutest thing I've ever seen. And even cuter when you watch it along with reading the words. I love it!
