Way to go champ!!!

March 25th, 2009

Jeremiah really enjoyed taking his first Karate Class. He worked very hard to listen during class, and learn all of the moves for his test.

We practiced and practiced, and when the big day came, he did great.

This is Jeremiah waiting in line with his classmates, to have Sensei sign his certificate of completion.

He was so funny, when he got his Yellow Belt, he also thought he was getting the boxing gloves that he had seen the Yellow Belt class kids wearing. He didn't realize hat he only gets those right before he cmpletes the NEXT class! I think he was more excited to get the gloves than the belt! I don't blame him...they looked pretty cool! Oh well.

You can tell how proud and excited he was; and we are all very proud and excited for him too!

It is always great to see the kid's do something that they enjoy and are good at.

Gotta keep 'em busy!

This bottom photo is Jeremiah and Brian Mendez. Brian and his family have been friends of ours since Makayla and Brian were in Mommy & me Preschool together in 2003-4. They have been close buddies ever since. He and his family have joined us for most of the kid's Birthday and our annual Halloween Parties. So it was a pleasant surprise when we discovered that Brian and J.D. would be in the same Karate Classes.
Many times after school, or after Karate class; we would have Brian and his sister Ivy over to play. It gave the boys a chance to get to know each other one on one; and now they are just as good friends as he and Makayla. It was a nice change. Also now that Ivy is old enough to play here by herself, it gave she and Makayla a chance to get to know each other much better.

So now, we are gearing up for the new session to start on April 1st; when the boys will go into the Yellow Belt Class. (And we think Makayla has decided to give Karate a try, so she will be starting the White Belt Class that J.D. just finished. Hey, I guess I won't be needing to buy a new white belt!) That will be nice for the kid's to be able to practice together.
