Caleb's Yellow Belt Graduation

Saturday Caleb graduated from white belt to yellow belt in Tae Kwon Do. Grandmama Ford came up to watch him. He had to perform some techniques that they had practiced and that he had been checked off on. Some things were individual, others were as a group, and some demonstrated teamwork. We were so proud of him! He did an awesome job!

As a surprise the instructor brought out boards for them to try to break and he broke a board with his foot and his hand, which he had never done before! Check out the pictures and video. To celebrate we asked Caleb to pick where we went to eat for lunch. He wanted Olive Garden because he loves their spagetti and breadsticks. Mmm! Mmm, good!


Puppy training is going pretty well. Max knows sit, stay, and come. He no longer cries and whines at night. He wakes up once or twice at night to go out to potty and whines for us to let him out of his crate to go outside. Still working on potty training while he is running around the house playing with the boys. He doesn't know to go to the door or us to let him out. He is a very sweet good natured dog. But does have a lot of energetic puppy in him and likes to nip and chew on fingers, toys, or anything around when he is in a hyper mood. Been calls him "scissor jaws" because he just wants to puppy bite and chew on something all the time. The boys are wonderful about taking him out to potty frequently, they also feed him, take him for walks, and have lots and lots of playtime.
