TAE KWON DO TUCKER

Today Tucker had his very first Tae Kwon Do lesson at Master Chong's. He was so excited and so enthusiastic about this, he could hardly contain himself. He had a private lesson today with Mr. Vest. Mr. Vest is the head instructor there, and he meets with all of the kids to evaluate if the kids are ready to start such a disciplined art. Well, Tucker was more than ready. Mr. Vest was very impressed with the respect that Tucker showed him, as well as his unbelievable "Natural Talent" for Tae Kwon Do. Tucker was able to recreate all of Mr. Vest's moves with ease. Okay, a biased Mom is rambling on...so check it out for yourself.

How happy is this kid?

He even punches and yells "Ha" with a smile.

Meditating Tucker

It couldn't all be about Tucker could it?
