Pump Packs Come in Handy....

Brendon's pump is in a pump pack that is wrapped around his waist. It might as well be a fanny pack because it's currently holding so much more.

In addition to his pump, he has Blistex, a dime he found, sometimes a Q-tip that he uses to pop the lock on our bedroom door, and a yellow checker.

He put the yellow checker in his pack to remind him of the Karate test he's taking on Saturday March 11 which, if he passes it, will move him up to yellow belt.

Twice a week, every week, he's been attending classes. He can't get enough of it. He never fusses or complains about going. The instructor is great with the kids and he knows just how far to push them.

So at 8:30 AM on Saturday March 11, my little boy will be in a room possibly by himself doing kicks and punches with a look of concentration I've never seen before. The kid never does anything half-assed, well except for cleaning his room.

  • Kids and their treasures, we should call them treasure packs.
    I have marked the date and time and we will be cheering him on from afar. He will do great!

  • If he cleaned his room with such determination, I'd tell you that you had a 'bot for a son, not a real kid. ;)

    Good luck to him! I'm sure most of the O.C. will be cheering him on.

  • Good luck to Brendon on Saturday :) You'll have to let us know how it goes.

    I had a little chuckle over the treasures he has in his pump pack. Kids are priceless.
