I’m really looking forward to today. Not only is this the last day of the second to last day of school, but it’s martial arts promotion. Both Elliott and Emmett have been anxiously awaiting today.
This is always a really cool experience, except it’s unbearably hot in the dojo, and there are a lot of heavy, heavy smokers. Obviously, no one’s smoking inside but you can still smell it, and it’s horrible.
Aside from that, the only downside is that Elliott’s promotion is first thing in the morning and Emmett’s is towards the end of the day.
Typically, they have always been one after the other. This time however, there’s roughly four hours between them. I guess we will have to go home and grab lunch or something. 😁
Anyway, watching the boys break their boards is such an awesome experience. The idea behind the breaking of the boards is that they learn that they are able to push through and overcome their obstacles in life. It’s something like that but it sounds way better when they say it.
The boys get a real kick out of watching themselves break their boards in slow motion. I always record it in slow motion for them.
I’ll let you all know how it goes. Feel free to leave any positive comments or well wishes for the boys in the comments below, I’ll share them with the boys later on…. ☺
