Tae Kwon Do Test Promotion Results

Congratulations to the Pink Ballerina and Princess Imagination for earning their yellow belts today in Tae Kwon Do!! They have been taking Tae Kwon Do for less than two months. They both had perfect scores in form, kicking technique, braking technique, and in training attitude. Master said it is very rare that he awards perfect scores in all 4 areas.

The Pink Ballerina, due to her age, was required to break two boards at the same time for her breaking technique. She did on the first try.

Princess Imagination, being younger, had the option of breaking one or two boards. She elected to break two boards at the same time, per encouragement of her classmates. She also did it on the first try.

Master & I felt Bumblebee was not yet ready for the test. He will be tested at a later date.

Love our Dojo!!

P.S. Congratulations to Bumblebee for earning his yellow belt a day later in Tae Kwon Do!! Another boy, Jelly, who started two weeks after Bumblebee, also earned his yellow belt today. It was so nice that they earned their belts together.

Another conversation

Overheard while the girls playing with their Monster High dolls:
(similar in size to Barbies, but with spooky looks, names, and detachable body parts).
Princess Imagination: My doll has two left hands!
Pink Ballerina: My doll has two right hands! I know, you give me your right left hand and I'll give you my left right hand.
(Both girls remove a hand and exchange them.)
Imagination: Wait! Now my doll's hands are backwards!
Ballerina: That's because you put the right hand on the left arm. Silly girl!

Like many musicians, I play many weddings every year, and we musicians are usually ignored by the photographers. The last time I was photographed was several years ago.

Today, I was photographed at TWO weddings, plus the videographer at the second wedding shot a couple scenes with me as well. Glad I wore my new pink dress! Feeling very photogenic today.

The sacristan told us that the bride of the first wedding was a 9/11 widow. He also said there were no altar servers for either wedding. So I volunteered my two girls for the second wedding. They looked so sweet when the Monsignor had them hold the bride's and maid of honor's bouquets. I hope my girls appear in the photos as well.
