This is a very special picture to our family. I'll show you the whole story in a minute. Anne was calling her Auntie Chelle immediately after receiving passing marks to earn her Black Belt in Kung Fu in July 2007. That grin was contagious. Uncle Clint (the cop) and cousin Lexi were there as was Uncle Curtis, Auntie Jen, cousin Alex, Mom, Dad, sister Lacy and her boyfriend, Trent. She had a fan club. Unfortunately (or otherwise) Auntie Chelle was cousin Cole's basketball coach and they had a big game that night.So, below is the competition. She had to do many things, but some of the highlights were when she had to show take-down techniques and used her friend James as her attacker. Her forms were very strong and she happens to be one of the best kickers in the school. Her upper foot on her scissors kick is over 7' and her lower foot is consistantly 2.5-3 feet off of the floor. And, yes, I'm just a little prejudiced. : ) The handsome hunk teaching her how to properly tie her Black Belt is Lama, the instructors son and one of Lacy's good, good friends and has also become one of Anne's chief supporters.
Now, I believe I have to tag six additional people, but I'm not at all sure how to do that, so for now..............................................beware, it could be you next.
Love and Blessings.
