We had talked to TL about it. You see, he was competing for the first time in a sparring tournament this past weekend. In fact, it was his first ever taekwondo event. There was only one trophy. So, as parents, we prepared him for a likely loss. He understood, he was just excited to compete.
Did I mention that there were only three other kids in his age group? And that they were all three belts or higher than he was?
Well, he won!! We couldn't believe it and he was sooooo excited!
I am so proud of him!
