There are so many memories that I love to relive. My graduation, piano recitals, playing hide and seek with neighbors, any class I ever had with Mr. Whalen. The list goes on forever. But here is one that I will always remember. I will try to get pictures as soon as I can find them. This was back in the day when only the rich people had a digital camera : )
My First Black Belt Test!
Date: February 9th 2008
Place: Grelley Colorado
Time: 8:00 AM- 5:30 PM
People Testing: 54
Level of Excitement: Off the Chart!
That day was the longest day of my life. 8 and a half hours of physical torture. But there were a few thing that were very interesting about that day. #1 If you know me and have been around me in a setting of high stress, you will know that I am the most nervous person on the face of the planet. However, that day, I was as calm as I have ever been. God really helped me and kept me safe and from hyperventilating (Which I do a lot!) #2 I got to do it with my little big sister. (3 years older, 5 inches shorter) That was fun.
Overall it was a really good day.
And there you go.
