We have been very busy. Friday was Tae Kwon Do testing. Jacinda is now a deputy 3. She is working for her next belt which will be her black belt. McCabe is a red belt and will be working towards his high red. He is very motivated to get his black belt. He wants to go 3 times a week instead of 2. I told him he needs to come home and practice what he learns so when he goes the next time he can earn his stripes. Tim was very smart to have us watch a little documentary on Tyler Haws. It showed how this young man worked hard so that he could play basketball but also had an eye towards Christ. Hopefully it struck a chord with McCabe and he will keep working hard and be patient. Master Kim commented that McCabe has a respectful spirit and it shines through.
Jacinda loves activity days. She made these cute turkeys for an activity. We are going to teach the cousins how to make them on Thanksgiving Day. I know they will be a big hit. I apologize in advance to my sister Mimi with her diabetic children. Hopefully these won’t throw the blood sugars too much out of balance.
Xadia is a glam girl. She got herself ready for church today. The earrings and bracelets were her idea. If there was make-up available she would be wearing it. She has been spending a lot of time in the car lately with all the running around I do. As a result, she has picked up on some of the songs playing on the radio. She loves to sing “Brave” by Sara Barielles, “Love Song” by Selena Gomez and “Home” by Phillip Phillips. We actually recorded her singing and put it on youtube for all to watch. It is great entertainment.
Teagan is all into cars. Anything with wheels is considered a car to him….trains, airplanes, lawn mowers, etc…. I love how he makes the “brm brm” noise each time he sees something that reminds him of a car. He is a cutie.
