“My bruder’s got da blue belt!” Jonathan was more excited than anyone today when Jeremy was awarded his blue belt in Taekwando. The boys usually have their lessons at the Koonce’s house, but our yard is a little more level, so they choose to have their “test” in our yard. Their teacher, Mr. Frank, comes up from Lomé on Thursdays. For those of you who know Jeremy, you know he’s not a very aggressive kid, but this is toughening him up a little.

Jeremy shows his stuff.

Notice how the four year olds are acting like, well, four year olds?
