The Karate Kid


This morning I got to take Christopher to Karate for his Belt Promotion.  He moved from Purple to Brown!  Now he's over halfway to a Black Belt.

Toes on the line.  
When Shihan tells them to get their toes on the line, it was amazing and beautiful to see how nicely they all lined up.  Pretty actually. 

Mommy's New Brown Belt, in his fighting stance. 
Well, and being a bit of a goofball. 
It took me a few belt promotion ceremonies, but I find it a whole lot easier to just have 1 parent go, and the rest of the yahoos stay home.  Last time E couldn't, and I took all 3 myself.  It was bonkers. No more of that.  Maybe next time I'll let Eric take his turn taking Christopher.  But it would be hard for me to not go.  I find such great Joy in seeing him move up.  I'm very Very Proud of him.
