Last night, (Friday, April 10), Miles became a certified Green Belt! He tested last week, and tonight got to experience the reward of all his hard work. We’re not like freakishly into Taekwondo, but we love how it’s challenging Miles to think, remember all the moves, respect authority, and just get out into his community.
So if you’re following his Taekwondo career, he’s moved through two belts (white & yellow), and now has his Green – and he is STOKED! If you’ve never seen him do his forms & steps, it’s pretty remarkable! Here’s a little video of him doing his latest form (and you can see how nervous he is, but he eventually got it).

And here’s the photo’s from both the testing and the ceremony.

Friday night, Miles tested for his Green Belt. He rocked it – there’s so much he has to remember, it’s funny watching him concentrate so hard. He did such a great job & we’re so proud of him! We’ll find out next week if he passed the testing.


I look at my son and am just amazed at what God has blessed us with… every day. The joy and responsibility of being a dad is something I wouldn’t trade for anything – and how loving is my heavenly father that he would offer me this experience! Anyway, two weeks ago Friday, Miles tested for his Yellow Belt. Here’s a little video of him doing his White Belt form (Miles is on the right):

And last Friday, he receieved his Yellow Belt! Jen and I were there with his sitster Macy along with his Mamo Barbara and Papa Bob. We’re so dang proud of him! Here’s a little video of him receiveing it (bummer, we left our decent camera at home, so this is TreoVideo):

I love this picture of Miles. It’s from the Miramar Air Show that we went to a couple weeks ago. I love the picture cuz it’s so Miles – he’s always been a happy boy, always. That’s one of the things I love about him. He just turned 6 and he’s growing up to be not only a son, but one of my best friends!

I just wanted to take a moment and tell the world how proud I am of him. Last night at Awana’s he got his little Sparky card for his first memory verse (yeah it was John 3:16). The same night, he also earned his first stripe on his white belt in Taekwondo – we’re so proud of him!

God is so good to us! Miles, mom & dad love you!
