Movin' up a Belt

Also in June, the boys tested and moved up to the next belt levels in Tae Kwon Do. I've said it hundreds of times, and I'll say it again, Tae Kwon Do has been so good for our family. We're so grateful for the time we spend with these great people.  Witten tested and received his Lil' Dragon's Green Belt, and Race tested and received his Solid Yellow belt (which is equivalent to a Lil' Dragon's Green in regular classes).

Witt with his teacher (and one of our favorite ladies), Ms. Kathy. We love you Ms. Kathy!

 And here is Witt with the fabulous Ms. Jyoti. She's also Witt's school teacher, and he loves her to pieces.

Our long time friend Jadon does Tae Kwon Do now too! It's so great seeing them at the testing. Whenever I see new pictures of them together, images of them playing together as two year old's pop in my head.

This one's a little blurry, but this is Race and Jadon again, getting ready to test.

Moving up to the 8 and Up class has been a big transition for Race. The classes are bigger, more demanding, more work. Much different from the Lil' Dragon's classes. But it's been good for us. It's because of this transition that I decided to join Tae Kwon Do. So I could understand a little bit better of what's required and help the boys practice at home. It's been fun, the boys love that I'm going to class too.

Race with Ms. Kathy. Something really awesome about Ms. Kathy is that her oldest son is blind, and a black belt. And she started Tae Kwon Do for a lot of the same reasons I did. To help her son. She's kind of become a mentor for me... just one of the reasons we love her so much. :)
