That was the advice we kept giving Sweet P today.
To help her pass her TaeKwonDo testing tonight.
Little M tested as well, but his was pretty basic and simple.
Case in point--They warm up together first and then begin the testing.
A little while into things I turned to HH and said, "Oh shoot! They're testing!" (We hadn't been paying the strictest attention.) He calmly replied, "Nah. It's still the warm up." I said, "I'm going to go in and take pictures anyway."
And guess what--They were testing.
Sweet P's testing was a bit more technical and involved more areas.
This is her doing her Ho-Am Form. I'm not going to say she looks like a real natural doing it, but she remembered all of the steps right the first time through (they get up to three tries). And that was a Joyful Moment for me.
But probably, the biggest Joyful Moment was watching her spar and KEEP HER HANDS UP. She's not the best spar-er either, but she did a great job remembering to keep her hands up and protect her face. Some day I'll have to get a good picture of her in her sparring gear. Pretty funny, if you ask me.
Here's keeping our fingers crossed that we don't receive a phone call on Monday telling us that one of them has to re-test!
Wishing you all Joyful Moments and the ability to remember to protect your face, above all else!
