The kiddos participated in their 2nd karate tournament at the school. For some reason, I don’t have pictures or even a post from last year, so I’ll have to dig those up.
In any case, yes, they were in a karate tournament. It’s been a busy few weeks around here, what with Girl Scout cookie sales, prepping for this year’s Pinewood Derby, wrapping up cub scout Webelos requirements, and prepping for a spelling bee. In the midst of all that, we’ve been harping on the kids to practice for their upcoming tournament. This year, they didn’t do the “Everyone gets a trophy” shtick that everyone complains about. This year, each group of 1-4 kids could only earn 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. Yes, how novel. 😉
Lily got 1st place in her age group of blue belts, and Josh earned 2nd place in his age group. Pretty awesome.
