Our yellow belt November 16, 2007

Posted by Joe in Family.

Late last spring, Rachel started taking Gymnastics lessons. She absolutely loves it. She is learning all kinds of acrobatic moves and is doing very well with it. Since I work a day job off of our little slice of creation, Benjamin and Lydia usually accompany Laura when she takes Rachel for her lessons.

It didn’t take long for Benjamin to notice that a Taekwondo class
slightly overlapped with Rachel’s gymnastics lesson. Scheduling
coincidence? I think not. They know how to cross market to siblings.

As you can probably imagine, it wasn’t long before Benjamin was taking taekwondo lessons. He’s worked hard and has already broken his first board. A few weeks ago he tested for his first belt promotion – from white belt to yellow belt. He passed!

These pictures are very grainy. Although there was plenty of light to see, it was apparently insufficient for the camera.

They make us spectators watch from a loft area. I guess it’s to keep us
from accidentally getting socked in the mouth by a wayward roundhouse

So, we now have a yellow belt in the house! Now, I guess we can cancel our home security system.  šŸ™‚
