Project 365, Day 294 (10/24/09) Pride and Determination.

Today, I am pleased to announce, that we have a BLACK BELT in the house!

Yes indeed; Jackson earned his belt, AND a trophy today and we couldn't be prouder! I will never forget the look of pride on his face as he was presented with his rewards. His commitment and determination finally paid off.

Later that same day, Logan put on a great show as he ROCKED his testing and became a Tiger; green belt.

He surprised us by using a different kind of kick to break his board,

and he was SO close to doing the complete splits during his form!

Marc and I cannot express how proud we are of our little guys. It takes a lot of commitment to show up all the time for tae kwon do. It's not seasonal; it's year-round. But they enjoy it and the folks at Freedom Martial Arts have been so great with them. They have learned so much and will continue to grow!

"Be soft in your practice. Think of the method as a fine silvery stream, not a raging waterfall. Follow the stream in its course. It will go its own way, meandering here, trickling there. It will find the grooves, the cracks, the crevices. Just follow it. Never let it out of your sight. It will take you." ~ Sheng-yen
