You learn a lot really quickly this way like the extra bow to the judges--point off! There were lots of little things and honestly it probably wasn't the best tournament to try. However, Jake came away with a gold medal and can now go to nationals this summer AND YET- wait for it- he didn't spar a single competitor! Only Jake, right? There was no one in his weight division to spar. Mr. Featherweight thought winning gold was great and is still telling everyone! Yep, there have been some discussion about earning wins. But, he's happy.
Jakeism of the day (because he's always talking):
Jake to Ally as she was playing around with his beyblade: "you are not worthy to launch the bay because you are not Asian!"
What a silly kid!!
Jake has been taking a science class on God's creation which includes him! He was so very excited to show me his finished skeleton. He's been talking about it for weeks. Speaking of talking, he's been doing a lot of that to his co-op teachers. Today he told her that he had gone to China for 2 days and walked 5,000 miles on the Great Wall! (We were absent last week due to my foot). Oh my! That's a whopper!
Jakeism for the day: While doing addition with 2 carry numbers, he said, "Wow! I am really moving up a league!".
Jake is reading a story about a crow. He read a similar story in another book. He said, "I read this but I think that was season 1 and this is season 2". He cracks me up.
It's kinda sad when you're only posting pics of a foot or toe! These four walls of my home seem to be closing in on me. I haven't made the progress I'd like, but progress nonetheless! I didn't scream or push Eric away with yesterday's dressing change. My toe incision is looking better and better with less drainage. At least we've gotten a whole lot done in our schooling and on a much slower pace!
The ole boys are "all in" when it comes to playing poker. I think Jake has no idea what he's doing but he does enjoy talking smack! I'm still working on getting rid of an infection post-op so it looks like school will resume tomorrow in my bedroom or the couch. I don't think the boys will mind one bit!
