Getting Ready for Christmas!

We got a ton of stuff done this weekend! We are making our lists and checking them twice. All that's left now is a trip to the post office, and several trips to the grocery store. Christmas cards are going out tomorrow and we even got our Santa pictures done! So maybe life won't be so crazy this Christmas. Maybe.

Belt Exam Day!

This morning T-man had a belt exam. He is testing for his green stripe. He said he was not nervous, and he did a great job. There were big smiles on his face during the exam - so he must have had fun too! We have to wait until Monday at class to see if he earned his stripe, he is confident that he did.

Kicking the shields.

Doing his forms.

Good Job T-man!

Black Belt!!!

Today was a very proud day for our family. J-man earned his black belt!
The test was intense and more than 2 hours long. Master Dan said that if nobody threw up he would be dissapointed - but they were all tough and nobody threw up (I was kind of glad about that). They worked really hard the whole time, doing kicks, forms, sparring, special technique, kicking the bag and finished off by breaking some boards.
