Last night at Mayport Naval Station I finally got to see Nich and Lauren (my cousin Charron’s kids) in their karate class. It was such a blast! There were a lot of other things going on last night (Shine Unplugged at church, a photography studio grand opening, and two other couples who wanted to hang out) but I am so glad I got to hang out with family and watch my cousin’s amazing kids kick some butt in karate! I was very proud of them.
Lauren is a tough cookie. Although she’s very much a girl and has a cute pink room and is a Hannah Montana fan, she is really strong. Watching her fight she doesn’t seem to have any aggression or an attitude like she KNOWS she can kick butt. She was pretty much smiling and having a great time. I wonder if she even realizes how good she is?
Here are a couple of shots of Lauren (in the blue shirt) kicking butt. The girl looks like she is scared for her life and the little boy is seen blocking and trying to protect himself from what he knows is coming:
Lauren was impressive, but Nich took on TWO kids at one time! I have no idea what these kids would have done if they had to face him one-on-one because even with two of them he was putting them on the ground. Nich is testing for his purple belt next month and I think he is definitely ready!
I really love this phrase on the back of all the students’ t-shirts:
There were kids of all ages at Fight Night. Some of the younger ones were just hilarious! They were so dramatic when they got hit and made the cutest little comments. There were also some older kids that were testing for their brown belt and those matches got pretty interesting.
After Fight Night we went back to Charron’s house and Matt brought over some pizzas. We all watched the debate, but after hearing the same key points over and over again we found more entertaining things to do. Charron decided to dress up Peanut. Just to fill you in, Charron has some of the most hilarious pictures of her mom’s cat all dressed up. It is a lot of fun to dress animals up. She put a Steelers outfit on him and we were laughing so freaking hard (beer just makes everything funnier). Here are a couple pics:
Is that not the cutest little sports puppy you ever saw? I think he really liked the jersey. We are sooooo buying him one! He wasn’t too thrilled about the helmet, but he looked so cute while he had it on.
We have a busy weekend ahead of us still. We have three photo sessions today and one tomorrow. I also hope to wipe my computer clean tonight so that will take a nice chunk of time.
I’ll be back to blog later. Since I’ve been a bad blogger as of late I decided to add Twitter again so I can give some updates while I’m out living life! : )
