From Purple to Blue Belts

On June 16th Davin and I passed our belt test so now we are blue belts. Since the test was on a Saturday, my family and the Lees were able to come cheer us on. It was fun to have them see what we do in Tae Soo Do. Meanwhile, my work schedule is kind of crazy because we have lots of people moving out right now, so in the middle of the test (when I wasn't needed) I walked over to my apartments to do a final walk through. It felt funny being in my uniform, but they didn't argue when I said they'd have a damage charge for something. Some quotes from our test: Kutz: "Melissa, what goals do you have set for yourself in Tae Soo Do?" Melissa: "To keep up with Davin." Mom (after watching us spar): "So that's how Davin and Melissa settle disputes." Jeremy (my "little" brother, after watching me grapple with Anne): "I just learned something. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but my sister can always hurt me."

Baby in Motion

Well, you can't get much cuter than that! I got to babysit Addison the other day and we had a lot of fun. I can't help pulling out my camera, although as soon as she sees it she makes a beeline for it... and she moves quick. Um, Addison, I can't focus on you when you're that close! But the cuteness still comes through.
