Yellow Belt!!

Jude did it!! After a lot of hard work and practice, Jude has passed his examination and received his yellow belt in Taekwondo. It started snowing a couple of hours before it was time to head out to the testing site, so all the roads and freeways were a mess. Of course it was rush hour, so snowplows didn't have time to clear anything. Basically the weather turned a 30 minutes test into a five and half hour ordeal. Jude was wonderfully patient throughout the whole thing, even when we thought the instructors were not going to be able to make it. Fortunately, they made it just before the time set to postpone the whole thing.

The highlight was the wooden board breaking. Jude was pretty nervous about that part, but all went well, even with the surprise:

Congratulations, Jude! You look awesome in that yellow belt!
