Tournament....

video

...so we went today. Here is a little snippet of me in action. I lost this sparring round, and wound up with third place out of four. I got first place in chanbara (padded swords) out of three women and third place out of five women in kata (think dancing with punches in kicks). Not a shabby showing, but feel like I could have done better. Let me just say that I'm crying laughing while I watch this!! Despite my hilarity at this, I do feel like I'm actually a contender. Moreso than when I went to the tournament in February. I've learned a lot. I do not take it as seriously as some of the women (the other in this video, for example) that come.

....Collin leaves for Boy Scout camp tomorrow morning. Aaron and Collin spent the last week amassing all of the necessary things. And it seems like the list was never-ending. Every time we turned around, we needed to shell out more money or go buy more stuff. But it will be worth it in the long run for him, I suppose. Poor Collin will never ever get an allowance though, at this rate. Or else he will certainly have to find some way of supplementing his income. Because he is getting expensive.

....last night found us drunk at the Fleck's house. Their new house is awesome for those with kids. They play either in the back yard or in their basement, and you NEVER know they're there unless they're asking for food. Given that there were about ten kids between everyone who was there, we got asked for food a lot. But it's better than in my house where we're all on top of eachother! It was a fun and relaxing time. And we stayed. Way. Too. Late.

I am surprised to see vidoe, but should not be since you are more tech savvy than me.

I wish I knew what the rules are. The other girl keeps moving back, scared of you I suppose. Is there a ring you have to stay inside of, like in wrestling? You totally could kick the sh** out of her!
