Dr Appt and other stuff

Wednesday Michael has his Dr appt for a growth check. He is just a hair shy of 4ft!! I mean seriously, they said 47.75 inches! He now weighs 53lbs. All of this finally puts him in the 3rd% on the growth charts!! I feel this summer will really put some gray hairs on my head with all the roller coasters he wants to ride...UGH!

Yesterday he tested for his orange/white belt in Tae-kwon-do. They also did a little sparring. There were tons of kids there for testing so it took about 3 hours. He got his belt though and he did really good. Here are a couple of photos:

Today we went to Auburn to watch his best friends from Spokane skate at their meet. We were only able to stay for a couple of hours because I have to work tonight; but we had a great time watching them and talking. The kids don't have school tomorrow-so right now Michael is over at a friends house spending the night. It is supposed to snow for the next day or so, so we will see if they get a snow day this year.

Man with Red Hair....

Today I took Michael to get his hair cut. He originally wanted them to color it as well, but the place we went to does not do that. So, afterwards, we went to Sally's Beauty place and found some red hair dye. We also found some blue hair spray stuff that he also wanted. Here are some of the pics from our event of dying hair:

what a goofball!

what happens when you eat too many carrots!!

This will be a busy week for Michael. He has a doctor appt. on Wednesday. They will draw blood to measure his hormone levels and probably take an x-ray to see what his bone-age is now. Then on Saturday he tests for his next belt. We have to get up early and get everyone there by 8:30am and we will spend the morning at the meet. Sunday we hope to meet up with our friends from Spokane and go skating. Should be a fun weekend!
