Christmas Vacation

Michael started his vacation on Thursday. It is a nice break for him and us. He has been just relaxing and hanging around the house with daddy and Nick. We have been watching Christmas movies, baking cookies, and he helped me put up some decorations last weekend. We went to his Tae-kwon-do event last weekend and I took some video of the kids' performance.

Michael had his first chance to spar last night. Sparring is held at the North West Tae-Kwon-Do Association's little gym in Spanaway. He practiced with kids of all different belts from different schools around the area. One of the boys from his class was there too, so they sparred against each other. We were there from 6:30pm to 9pm. The one thing the pictures cannot convey is how COLD it was in that place. They had two medium sized heaters running the whole time, but it was still very cold. He did very well. They did an hour of warm-ups...sit-ups, push-ups, running, jumping, and all kinds of other stuff. Michael said he had LOTS of fun. The Association has won many championships, and they had all their medals hanging on the walls. Needless to say, he was exhausted by the time we got home, and went to bed after he took a bath. Here are some pics:
