Kasey can't wait to get to Tae Kwon Do.  She's so enthusiastic about the school and about the instructors, Phillip and Shannon. The biggest thing I've noticed is how much more responsible she is with school attendance.  She doesn't want to miss a day, even when she might be tempted to 'play hooky.'  It's given her more self-discipline and motivation.
