Purple belt!

Pierce has been doing Tae Kwon Do for almost a year and a half. That's a year and a half with no off seasons, and no major breaks. Just year round kicking, blocking and being all Chuck Norris. 

I can tell he's starting to grow tired and bored with it, yet he just doesn't seem to want to quit it either. I will lay money on one thing though, I bet if he quits it, he will regret it within a couple months.

As of now though, we are still chugging along. 

Testing was scheduled the day we were to leave for vacation, so they agreed to let him test the day before. 

The boy he went up again, was quite a bit bigger!
 But once again, he held his own.

Since we were still vacationing during awards time, he didn't get to go through the usual hoopla getting his belt. But he did in fact pass, and he is now officially a purple belt!  (even though it looks totally blue in the picture)
If he sticks it through purple and tests again, he will make it to brown belt, which is a whole different league, and much tougher. We shall see!

Neat!! We are going to try it after 4th of July. They give you a week free. I am excited for both boys to give it a try. I think they will like it. We shall see.
