Peach State says: Tae Kwan Do Testing Today

20120818-072401.jpg

With coffee in hand I will do something I have not done in many years. I am attending my first belt testing for my youngest today. My three older boys have all successfully achieved their Black Belts and have participated in many tournaments. I always looked forward to the in-sync form presentation. However, today I will watch expectantly as my youngest, nervously, performs his form. His disabilities cause him to become easily distracted. His early upbringing did not provide him with the manners and etiquette required in TKD. We have consistently worked on this in the 5 years he has been with our family. The encouraging part of this disability is the fact that he mimics others. This will be a strong plus….as long as he mimics the right people! It is time to wake him up and get him focused…I will keep you posted throughout the Tae Kwan Do Testing Today!

Have a great day!

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
