Always have a dream
Forget about the days when its been cloudy,
but don't forget your hours in the sun.
Forget about the times you've been defeated,
but don't forget the victories you've won.
Forget about mistakes that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons that you've learnt.
Forget about misfortunes you encounter,
but don't forget the times you luck has turned.
Forget about the days when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly smiles you've seen.
Forget about the plans that didn't seem to work out right,
but don't forget to always have a dream.

I'm a Proud Mom
Again, Cody tested for another belt this past Saturday. He's now received his 5th belt (Green). He has 6 more before he receives his 1st Black belt. Actually 9, because the last three, (Blue, Red, and Black) they have to test twice for. Don't ask me why! I guess they just want them to know the moves really well. I'm really proud of him. He's come a long way, and has learned a lot, especially from the Leadership portion. They teach them things like honesty, and belief, etc. It has helped him in school also! He still has to work on his hearing though!! (LOL)
In full gear for sparring
Receiving his belt from Mr.Lee (3rd degree black belt)
...and don't ask me why the kids put those stickers on their foreheads that come off of the new belts?! It's kind of like a tradition?!
