This past weekend was one of pride. I love watching my kids showing respect with the judges, and making new friends at a TaeKwonDo tournament. They both did great!! They came home with 18 inch trophy’s and Greta came home with the Beast Trophy for breaking. I think that trophy is a prized possession now. There were only 4 given away in each age group and she got 2nd place. I don’t know if I have seen a bigger grin. The above picture is Henry in blue. He ended up getting 1st place in Sparring. Pretty proud of my little guy.
Greta is in blue. Wow look how high her leg is on this head kick. She amazes me everyday with what she can do. She ended up getting 2nd in Sparring. She did great and is learning the higher she gets the competition gets harder also.
As much as kids can drive us nuts and mess our house up to the point of the Horder producers come knocking they are amazing. They are amazing of what they can accomplish. When Greta was little she couldn’t walk or even balance on her own. She had the littlest little foot braces and PT. There was a time when the therapist wasn’t sure she would ever walk normally. Now she is a 2nd degree jr black belt. I am amazed when I think back at that time. Henry couldn’t enter a room with people in it without a complete meltdown. I thought of both of these things as we were driving out to South Dakota this weekend for both of our children to compete in a physical sport that will be loud, with a lot of people. God works miracles and I have two of them.
