"That went really well!"

Something I didn't think I would be able to say when Gareth and Rhys said they wanted to learn how to cross-stitch. 

A bit of backstory:  I have a cross-stitch project that has been in the works for the last 10 years (I know, I know, classic Nancy). I started working on it again after a friend of mine was over and I showed it to her. The boys have been watching me work on it. They both expressed interest in learning how to cross-stitch. Gareth had a beginner kit sitting from a while ago and I picked one up for Rhys while I was out today.

Go Gareth!

So, as most of you know, Gareth has been training in traditional Tae Kwon Do since he was 5½ years old (he is now 11¾ .....YIKES!)

At Tae Kwon Do, we have what is called "formal grading". These are the gradings where we are able to earn our next belt. They are a pretty big deal at the best of times. 

Last night Gareth hit a milestone with his training; he earned his RED belt!

Words cannot express how proud I am of this kid!
