In a miraculous turn of events, well actually with a lot of persistence and indomitable spirit, I actually did make it to Taekwondo belt testing yesterday morning.
It was a lot of fun! I didn't make it to see my son do his first testing, so it was really worthwhile to see him this time. The little ones went first, so I got to take pictures of him, and he got to get kind of bored while the white and yellow belts did our routines. It got him a little more excited to advance to the next class, to see what they do. I didn't get any pictures of myself, but maybe next time it will work out to get some. (My husband had strep throat, so he and my youngest son slept in all morning).
I barely squeaked through all the preparation work with one review class on Friday night (after missing two weeks of classes). Even so, I felt prepared and confident. I enjoy performing, even though I'm more timid in most situations. I even like tests, it takes the boredom out of a routine.
It was not as strenuous a workout as the regular class, so I don't think I overdid it. A little more sleep would have been nice, but I'm about to catch some of that soon.
