Taekwondo Cody

Soccer is over and Cody decided it was time to move on to something new. On Monday he took his first Taekwondo class. He went to three classes this week and really seems to be liking it. His instructor, Master Steve, is tough but i think it will be good for Cody. We are hoping he learns respect, discipline, and confidence. He has already learned a lot in just one week. He studied all week to learn a page full of various questions, and today he got his yellow stripe of knowledge. He was so excited and we were very proud of him.
Here are a couple pictures of him in his new uniform, he looks pretty serious huh, i wouldn't want to mess with him! Oh and don't mind his hair, it just happened to be crazy hair day at school that day.

At his first class Master Steve wrote his name on his uniform in Korean. Cody thought that Master Steve said "Cody, i am going to write your name on your uniform in crayon." He thought that was weird until i corrected him on what really happened:)

 After today's class with his new yellow stripe!! Good job Cody, we are so proud of you!

Monkeys last game - fall 2010

Last Saturday was Cody's last soccer game. He was so lucky to get on such a great team for his first soccer season. We just happen to be put on a team that was made up of a lot of kids from our church, so it was a great experience. He loved his Coach A.J. and got to be good friends with all of his team mates. Now i know that they don't officially keep score at the games when the kids are this age but well, we did. The Monkeys never lost a game and did such a great job. They got better every week and it was always fun watching their games. I know Cody had a fun time but he says he is really looking forward to baseball, which makes dad happy:)
Here are some pictures from the last game and them with their medals.....

Half time pep talk

Pumpkin Patch 2010

We had a fun day yesterday at our local pumpkin patch. It was a beautiful day, actually hot, we were roasting while playing around outside. There is so much to do at the pumpkin patch we went to and i think we did it all. Cody had already been there this year with his school class so he showed us around a bit. Jake's favorite thing by far was the corn box with tractors, he could have played there all day. Here are a few pictures from our fun fall day.....

The boys loved the Zip Line, it was the first thing that Cody wanted to do.

Jake looks so tiny hanging from the zip line, he loved it.

Jake's favorite place in the whole patch!

Worlds Of Fun

I am a little late in posting this but last weekend we went to Worlds of Fun. It's a amusement park in Kansas City. It was our first time there and we had a lot of fun. We spent most of the time in Camp Snoopy with the kids. We went with a family friend and his son. Cody liked having a buddy to ride the rides with. Jake was fun to watch on the rides, he loved them and rode anything he was tall enough to ride.

Riding the flying Dutchman....

This was one of Cody's favorite rides....

Jake rode every train he saw.....

We had a great time, just wish it wouldn't have been so cold. It was unbelievably cold especially when the sun went down. After dark there was a monster parade that Cody and Jake didn't care for too much so we left soon after that. While it was no Disney World it was fun and i know the boys enjoyed it.
