Demonstrating Saipha at BBA Trade Fair 2010

This week, I had the chance to see two of my darlings take center stage in their respective activities.

Leah and her Daisy Girl Scout Troop gave a presentation about Girl Scouts (or Guides as they are called) in Mexico. The event was in celebration of World Thinking Day: a day when Girl Scouts and Girl Guides around the world think about one another.

She looked adorable, knew her lines, spoke clearly into the microphone, and smiled. I was a proud mama!

My oldest darling, Zachary, was asked to participate in a Goju-Ryu Karate demonstration at the annual Bedford Business Association’s Trade Fair. The program is part of Bedford Public School’s Community Education Program.

He was asked to demonstrate the kata Saipha. He and his partners did an excellent job! He also demonstrated kumite, or sparring. I don’t particularly enjoy watching that part…always afraid something will get broken. :)
