Tough Man

Isaac earned his orange (3rd level) belt at the end of the last Tae Kwon Do session, so this session he's been learning to spar. He's positively giddy about it. He came home from the first class informing me that he needed a mouth piece and a cup. Maya said, "Why don't I get a cup?" I told her it's just for boys. With a look of injustice, she turned to Isaac and asked," What is it?"
Without embarrassment, he explained: "It's a special cup for karate, that only boys can drink out of."
That night he and Kyle made a special trip to Wal-Mart, just the two of them. It was a real learning experience!
Isn't he handsome??

Isaac has so many talents and looks so imposing in all that sparring gear! I'll be glad to have him defend me anytime! Congratulations on your orange belt, Isaac!!

That's so funny! Did you explain that the real purpose of the cup is to protect future little Clarks?

He looks very macho. I love it!

OK, Isaac had Jonah and I cracking up tonight with his "cup" comment. Too cute and such a handsome guy he is!
