We finally found that a sport they can all participate, better yet stick with!
I feel like they've tried them all; soccer, tennis, ballet, swim, chess and golf, (baseball's next year).
So when Saturday came it was a big day for my three littlest ones. Their first belt testing!!
100 jumping jacks
It was almost as much fun seeing the looks on the parents and grandparents as the kids counted 10, 20, 30, ...100 crunches. I think all our stomachs were hurting just watching.
Modesty, Courtesy, Integrity, Self-Control, Perseverance, Indomitable Spirit...and a smile.
They've been working hard for the past 3 months, 2-5 times a week, collecting stripes and now it's official,
we have 3 yellow belts in our house! or what mine refer to as the bumble belt, once they get a couple black stripes on it.
All five of us take karate, but belt achievement is slower in the adult classes.
There's no shame, Luna and I look good in our white.
It makes me proud to see all their hard work and perseverance give them such a sense of accomplishment,
as they proudly tie their yellows for class each week.
