Halle and Noah each brought home a 3rd place trophy from the tournament today. I was very proud of them. Noah had a major case of nerves and almost backed out; that makes his prize all the sweeter. I think they both did great, especially considering it is the first tournament they have ever attended, much less competed at. Noah wants to go to another tournament next weekend... it's about 3 hours away from here. We'll still be in CA, so if he goes, he will go with some friends of ours (Brian's boss and his son, who is a blue belt... just 3 steps from his black belt).
