My friends, the skies will open, light will come down, and celestial choirs will be singing...

Right before my wife left to go swimming Vance was playing w/ my hanbo (3' staff.) (That just happens to be about the right size for him.) He asked me if I wanted to play w/ it. I was thrilled. I first had to get him to stop trying to tap on everything in sight.
After that, I managed to show my son and daughter some staff techniques. I had them block up, down, and on each side. They also did downward-inward strikes. I tried to show them thrusts, but they just kept swinging.
All in all, it was maybe 10 minutes, but it's a start. :)
