Today is the Day…

No, not that day, silly. Today is the day–and in a few short hours actually–when we find out if Sammy passed his belt testing Saturday. This would be the last belt before black. Pretty cool for an 8-year old. We’re really proud of him, especially considering the amount he had to learn when we switched dojangs […]

Sammy’s New Taekwondo Dojang

Saturday, May 8, 2010

We are very happy with the new dojang we found for Sammy. But before I can tell why, I have to explain what went wrong with the previous one. Sammy initially began at the previous dojang 2.5 years ago. It was his–and our–first experience. It was basically just down the street, making it very convenient, […]

Hanging out and watching the adult events first: Was missing my baby Maddie, so borrowed a baby: Sammy and some of the other kids from the dojong stretching: Poomse (forms) up first: Then breaking. This is the before picture of his 6 boards. And this, of course, is his after: And […]

Seven years ago this day, at 11:30pm–just in time to take the tax deduction, Samuel Isaac came into our lives. And true to the meaning of his name, Sammy has been a God-given gift to us, and brings a lot of laughter into our lives. He’s taught us patience and showed us that with hard […]

Sometimes Sammy says the most interesting things… We were talking about a story of a couple who named their son with the first and middle names of ‘Adolph Hitler’, and asking the kids if that name would bother them, to help gauge how much younger kids understand. Mika understood, but Sammy didn’t really know the […]

Sammy’s Governor’s Cup (State) Tournament was today. Since I had to work, JoAnn’s there with him. Just got a call that in his forms (poomse), he just won a gold in his age bracket. Coming up, his breaking…he’s doing a combination of a chop break, elbow break, axe kick break, and sliding sidekick break. It’s […]

Our kids are homeschooled. But we’re also a part of Columbia Virtual Academy. Basically we’re under the umbrella of the school, and accountable for certain things. But not all things. Some will say we are selling out, but I think of it more like this: we get some of our tax money back that we […]

The Power of a Big Brother

One of Sammy’s endearing traits is his sock selection, with his favorite pair being red. And apparently they go with anything and everything, even if there is no other red on his body. But he’s not wearing them today…this is an important point to make. Tonight, Josh was getting into his diaper bad and pulled […]

Did we mention that Josh seems advanced? Here he is ready to take on Sammy in Madden 08. …but he’s not quite ready. Only because he can’t yell “TOUCHDOWN!” and “INTERCEPTION!” quite yet. God help us when he does…

New Madden 08 record!

Yesterday Sammy and I played Madden 08 together. I let him choose his team–and mine. He chose the Dallas Cowboys for him (good choice) and the Rhein Fire of the now-defunct NFL Europa (not so good of a choice for me). I never should have explained the stats numbers to him…the Cowboys are around 90; […]
