I think we found our family sport! We’ve tried t-ball for three years, my oldest plays soccer in the spring and fall, but the one sport all three enjoy is Tae Kwon Do. Thankfully there’s a training hall within a reasonable distance with a family atmosphere we enjoy.
It’s been two years now since we became a part of the Tae Kwon Do family. The boys started in “little dragons” and now attend the “lite TKD class.” For a while I joined them and then decided to take a break for various reasons.
Last Friday the boys took their test to reach the next level. They did a great job, despite some anxiety and nervousness and I was on edge through the whole test with them. The results were amazing! They each reached the next level! My Farmer and I were so proud! Our oldest achieved green tip status, our middle son earned his yellow belt, and our youngest now has a yellow tip on his white belt. You could tell they were proud of themselves and we were proud of them!
I promised my youngest I’d join the class again if he got his yellow tip, because then we’d be at the same belt level. He did it and now I have to uphold my end of the deal. So it’s back to class I go to become a student just like them even though two of them out rank me now. Love that part!!
