My big boy Tman earned his orange belt in Karate two weekends ago and we were all so proud him. We did Soccer last Fall but he really wasn't impressed and when we started Karate this year he was just super excited about it all. At first he was all over the place never listening to the instructors and just doing his own thing. Then he slowly got better, calmer, and started listening to the instructions.
He does Karate 2 days a week and swimming 1 day a week which makes for a pretty busy week for him and us but we love how well he is doing in both. Two weeks ago the instructors told us that he was ready to test for his orange belt and I got super giddy with excitement. I love that you have to take a test and earn your belt. It's a short 10 minute test but I just love the fact that he had to earn it.
In our fashion, we packed up the entire crew to go support our Tman. Family selfie in the car with the best crew :). Don't mind my hubby, he is the king of silly faces ;)
