Tobie participated in his very first Karate Tournament. He didn't do so great with the scoring, but I thought what he did was pretty awesome. You could just tell the difference in the focus from the other kids who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. But now that he has seen what the tournament is about he has made a goal to get one of the medals. He wants to go all the way to black belt. I really hope he stays motivated, and I hope I stay motivated to push him when he isn't so motivated.
Happy 43rd Birthday Matt!
