February 28

Today was a really big day for the Hornbuckles! We went to a taekwondo tournament in Humble (north Houston) this weekend, and Jack had SUCH a good day! To start with, his school won 2008 Texas School of the Year! Wow! He was ecstatic. This reflects on not only him, but his entire staff and students. That's definitely something to be proud of.

Next, he competed in forms and weapons (for those of you who don't know, the weapon he competes with is a normal walking cane. I know, it's funny. Because he's old)

He ended up kicking butt!!!! He won first in forms, first in weapons, and third in sparring! What a day! This puts him at second in the world in weapons and fifth in the world in forms in the standings for the world champion competition.

After Jack competed, he had to judge for the rest of the day, so I headed down to Brittany's apartment to hang out with her for the rest of the day. Man, it's so nice to see her, especially when I haven't in a while! She's the type of friend that you just pick up right where you left off, no matter how long it's been since you last talked.

She tried on all Jack's medals, just for fun. And because this picture truley represents my day. You know, minus Jack.

Jack and I drove back home tonight, enjoying about 6 hours of very pleasant conversation with each other. It's just so nice to have these moments when we're so glad to be married to one another. We fit well.
