Kevin and Zach have been taking taekwondo lessons since January as a Christmas gift from Grandpa and Grandma Dee. They both seem to really enjoy it and yesterday they were able to test to see if they could earn their yellow belt. We weren't able to make it to the regular testing session on Friday because we were headed out of town, so they tested in class. At the end of the class I asked if there was anything else they needed to do and told the instructor that the boys were hoping to break some boards because that's what they were told they would have to do earlier. When the instructor said they only do that on regular test day the boys were sad and mad that we had missed it. But thankfully, the owner, Master Shin, came and said he had a surprise for them as they were getting their shoes on. You can see for yourself on the videos.
