Taekwondo on Paper Towels

Silas shows his Taekwondo moves using some paper towels.
I feel very safe if I'm ever attacked by paper towels
knowing he will protect me.

Mum and Silas Reading

I needed to take a few snapshots when I saw Mum reading to Silas
under the Christmas tree.

Ok.. Now look at me and smile.
No Silas, not a "funny face!"

I love to hear him laugh.

Ok. Serious photo smile.

Christmas Lights

Who needs a tree?

We'll just decorate Silas.

Maybe it is going to take a long time
to put these lights on the tree with Silas' "help."

Normally white-belts don't spar,
but Silas is well on his way to yellow,
so he was allowed to spar with the yellows.
Who what's to spar against Silas?

First Real Drawing

This was Silas' first real drawing.
He drew Dad (left), himself and Mum (right)
walking down the street along with a truck.
It is incredible to watch his mind develop.

New Wood Floor in Lounge Room

This was a major project.

We didn't like the tile in the house.  Tina wanted bamboo wood floors.

Let's rip out the tile.  Silas was trying to help.

Mum wanted to try and help too.

Time to put in the wood flooring.

Half way there.


Just a bit more cleanup needed.  Thanks Silas!
