We Got a Break from Lessons Today

We learn a lot of lessons when we lose. During the last few Tae Kwon Do Tournaments, we've learned quite a bit. So, it was nice to have a winning day. Maya won gold today at the California Open, and Mina won silver. The best part was when Maya peeled off her gear post-match and she said, "I'm proud of myself." I said, "That's the best thing you could say, Maya. " I choked up and couldn't say much more.

Here are my favorite pictures of the day.

Man, these girls were great.

Oh! I'm so proud of them both! Maya has dealt with super-close losses like such a champion and I'm thrilled for her to win this gold. Congratulations from over here. xO.
