Good Day

First, I want you to know I started this blog post on Saturday...I am not sure why it has taken until Monday at 1 am to finish it


Josh started taking Taekwondo when he was I believe 10 years old. He has progressed a great deal from when he first started. I have always enjoyed watching him. He and I use to travel all over to different tournaments. First in ATA, ITC and now in the HTF organizations. (I looked for pictures from when he was young and we were traveling to California, Washington and of coarse here in Idaho, but they are in pictures that are not saved on my computer so I would have to dig through boxes to find them, and beings that I have taken 2 days to do this post I decided not to embarace him that much.) Anyway, Saturday he and several of his students went to a tournament in Rupert, it always has a good turn out from schools from Idaho and Washington, and this was no different. All of his students that competed received medals, including Josh.

I am looking right at my sister in law in the last picture. I am not kidding. My brother is the one that put on the party. I am freaking out. Glad it went good and great job on your sons accomplishments.

Just wondering... seeing as you have driven him around since he was ten, followed him through different states, worked with him and for him... Do you know any taekwondo?

Looks like fun. Is that a lake or a river in the picture? How fun to live so close. Mimi

Janiece said...

no, I have not taken any classes in years,so I do not know much.

The water in the back of our lane is the Snake River....the only back yard neighbors we have are the bass fishermen and what ever bird is hanging out

OK- So I guess your telling me to lay off the politics & religion stuff? Sorry but our stake read a letter from the 1st Presidency regarding this Bill that I am talking about. In itm it said to do all you could do to help protect marriage & get the word out to people to vote.
So I am doing my part. I know it's a subject that most don't talk about. But it's also been a subject (politics) that the church never talked about & now they are encouraging us all to Stand up..
So I am standing up. I said my two sense & I have posted something new...

I have to say too. PLEASE DON'T think I am trying to be mean or hurtful. I am not in anyway.
I guess I over compensate in some areas & under in other ways.
Dang it all I sure wish I was perfect & knew how to say things & people truly knew what I meant from the heart.
I joke around a lot & I am a smart a.. I never mean to hurt anyone's feelings & if I have hurt yours. Please forgive me, because I am truly sorry.
I DO Respect everyone's feelings & beliefs. I appreciate your friendship & how sweet you always are.
Sometimes I forget all of you that are my blogging friends haven't met me or heard me & how I talk.
Thanks for being a Friend. You are a Great woman & I look up to you...
