We all share the same moon no matter where we are in the world!

We have discovered a really fun place where the kids can learn and experience ART  and all that comes with it....it is called DAVA and it is free. Kendy has been twice now with friends and she seems to really enjoy herself. Today she made a clay snake and then turned it into a beautiful piece of art. She coiled it up, gave it texture, painted it, added jewels and now it is ready for the kiln. The piece will be added to a hanging sculpture for an Art show May 11th, then we get it back. I love that her little piece will be part of something bigger.  I can't wait to see it after it is baked and hanging!

Award to Taylor

We are so proud and happy for Taylor. She was chosen by her teachers as the outstanding 2nd grader for GVA, and she received the Aurora Scholars Award from the Mayor of Aurora. Last night all the schools in the city of Aurora came together to honor their top all-around student leaders. GVA honored one student from each grade. The ceremony was entertaining and well thought out. The kids enjoyed meeting the panel of dignitaries present to witness the ceremony.  The kids all received a key to the city! We met our Mayor! He was very gracious and excited to share this evening with the kids.

Taylor you are a bright star and we can not wait to experience your future! But stay our little girl for a while still. I love you!

Taekwondo White Tiger

Taylor recently participated in the White Tiger Championships put on by her dojang KAT. She took gold in her red belt forms and silver in pairs with her partner Anthony. She also tried board breaking for the first time: cartwheel into a scorpion kick to break a board, then an ax kick to break a board followed up with a ridge hand to break a board. She didn't medal but she sure looked good doing it. She takes her red belt test next month and is really enjoying taekwondo. As long as it brings a smile to her face and she feels good, then we will keep up with taekwondo.

Easter 2012

 Daddy set up the Easter egg hunt for all the kiddos.
 Egg decorating at DAVA
 We colored eggs at home with friends Michelle, Sydney and Miah.

 The Easter Bunny is a little too big for Kendy! But she loved her Easter basket full of goodies!

Taylor participated in the Colorado State championship this year. She performed her individual poomsae (form) and took 2nd place. Taylor and her partner Anthony took 1st place in the team poomsae and they were so excited. They were in sync with their moves and looked really cool. They practiced and worked on their forms, together with Mitch, for several weeks beforehand so it was very gratifying for them to realize their hard work paid off. They qualified for Nationals with the 1st place ranking. We are so proud of Taylor!
