Angelique participated in her very first karate tournament over the weekend. The school we attend hosted the event and competition was handled in a very positive manner. Angelique competed in kata, which is a set sequence of karate moves organized into a pre-arranged fight against imaginary opponents (thank you wikipedia) which she earned 2nd place in her age group and in pinning where she took 1st place.
I am so proud of all the effort and practice she put in. Ironically, I am now looking forward to her not winning so I can show her how proud I am of her then too!
I am a wife and a mother just trying to stay sane in the crazy world of our lives. My goal in life tends to be getting my house clean and keeping it that way for more than 2 days. But when you're never home who has time to clean?
