Tae Kwon Do Tournament

This evening, Steven and the girls had a Tae Kwon Do Tournament. And all did very well.
Here, Rachel performs her Green Belt Form.
She places 3rd in her division for Form!

Rachel also placed 3rd in sparring. She had a little bit of a panic in the midst of one of her sparring competitions. Her opponent had punched her in the nose! You know, the nose that had a nose job on last November?? The nose that is still pretty tender?? Yea, that nose. But after some tears were shed and after she was looked over by Mom and Dad, she went back into the ring accompanied by the support of clapping onlookers.She had already taken off all her gear by the time this picture was taken.

She did a great job and was VERY pleased with herself and her accomplishment!

Oh, that must have been pretty scary! I'm always nervous about things bumping Gavin's nose and mouth. I guess that's a natural concern for a cleft parent. Glad to hear that everything was okay and that she did so well in the tournament.
