Slow Summer Mornings (under a green blankie).
Now that Quinn has his TKD blue belt, he attends class with kids who have blue belts and up. I\’ve noticed Quinn\’s skills have gone up a level just in the short time he\’s been in the new class.
Here\’s Quinn doing a \”forms battle\” with a 2nd degree blue belt to see who can do their form best (they are doing 2 different forms). The other boy has a brain fart about 15 seconds in which messes up Quinn too, but Quinn composes himself and keeps on going. Quinn wins this match.
BLT\’s with extra bacon please!
Quinn got a tomato plant at a Cub Scout Meeting in June and it had 4 tomatoes with one getting nice and red.
Until a little thief took off with it. Stupid squirrel!
For the last 3 summers Quinn has participated in Parkour camp at a local gym. He only does a couple of afternoons but loves it each time. And what a cool place!
Back to TKD. For each new belt, Quinn has to earn his philosophy stripe for that belt. Basically he has to learn a handful of information about the belt….and also remember all the information from previous belts. At this point, it\’s become quite a bit of information. Don made Quinn a bunch of flash cards to help him study. Quinn hates flash cards and thinks they are overrated 🙂
Studying for the Blue Belt.
This is Quinn\’s face after he ACED his philosophy test. Why this face? \”As much as I hate to admit it, flash cards do work.\”
