Well, it's that time of year again when tournaments are held where we get to compete in martial arts and this year was a pretty good one! Due to a conflict of schedule whereby my daughter was getting her first communion, only my son got to compete this year as far as the family is concerned. End result - 4 events, 4 medals! Woo hoo! He took second place (silver) in every event he entered and helped the over school standings where we came in third out of 9 schools - over 850 competitors this year! The one we like the most is the full-contact sparring ... he had the "misfortune" of weighing 88# in a weight class that went 88-105 ... and none of the others were under 97# - a lot of weight to give up when you're nine years old! Ha ha. To make it even more exciting (for us!), the junior grandchampion and runner-up grandchampion both came from our school! They competed in seven events each and medaled (most gold, obviously) in all of them as well ... not too shabby! Anyway, just being the proud papa here - nothing to see - move along.
