Tamilyn's First Steps

Tamilyn's First Steps

I was blessed to see Tamilyn's first steps back in 2006, while we were living in Los Angeles, California. Here's the video that I put together.

I came home from work one evening and Trauna told me that she thought Tamilyn was ready to walk. I grabbed the camera and captured some of the most precious moments of my life.

Tamilyn will be 7 years old in May. Yes, they really do grow up fast.

It's interesting how I miss that little one walking around in the video. It's like that little person is gone and a bigger, little person has taken her place.

Taekwondo Speed Training

Don't laugh, but I just recently started Taekwondo (TKD) at age 40. I remember growing up watching Jhoon Rhee commercials and wanting to join a karate class, but we just didn't have the money. There I was at 10 years old watching kung fu theater on Saturday mornings and I would see these commercials pop up. "Nobody bothers me" was the tagline that stuck in my head.
 
Skip ahead some 30 years and now I have my own daughter and it's the first time I walk into a Taekwondo  class. In the beginning, it was all about my daughter learning TKD, getting discipline, learning respect and all that. But while I was watching her in class, I started thinking, "it will be cool to actually do the class with her." So, a few months after we arrived in Oklahoma, I began my first Taekwondo class. Yep, at 40 years old.
