We drove over to Ft. Pierce Friday night for the 8am check in on Saturday. It was utter chaos in the arena. Next time I'm leaving everyone at the hotel, go to check the boy in & get paperwork and come back around 10am.
The schools lined up for opening ceremony (song, bows, announcements, etc).
Nicholas hamming it for the camera.
Sensei Shelby kicking butt across the arena. She had her opponent on the floor. Go Shelby!
Nicholas' age group called to the staging area. He is the little guy with the orange bag walking away from the camera. He had to carry his stuff & prepare himself without my assistance.
I hit a button on the camera and it turned on b/w..arghh i had to fight the camera to get it back to 'normal'. I missed some of nico's stuff.
