Almost Blackbelt

Breaking the board.

While the beginning of this week did not start well, it ended in on a good note. Harris went up for his black belt today. We won't know for about a month whether or not he passed. Hopefully I am not jinxing it by posting the photos now. Lots of people including his coach said he did well. I hope that means he passed. Harris has been doing Karate since Kindergarten. We could not be more proud of him. He really worked hard to get to this point. We love you Harris and we are so very proud of you. Congratulations! We hope the skills you have learned from participating in Karate will translate into lesson to help you in the future.

Wow, this is really great. My kids are doing Taekwondo (spelling) and I'm not as serious about as Tennis Academy and Piano, but they love it. If they go really far it will be because they've really wanted to.

I've heard to test for black belt it takes a couple of hours? True? I think this is great, this will translate into to some great character traits.

You're a great mother-

Take care,

Shauna
