yellow belt

A couple of weeks ago Henry had his belt test.  It was awesome to see him trying so hard.  He really wanted his yellow belt.  He was tired of being a white belt surrounded by belts of many colors.

Here he is doing a palm heel strike.  (The great teacher had the kids turn and do their moves facing their parents for a bit to give all of us some photo opportunities.)

Henry about to break a board—a real board!  And he did it in only three tries!  Go Henry.

The class after getting their new belts being fierce.

Now the class being their normal selves.  Silly.

I love the silly picture. The first picture is quite striking (hahaha...pun intended...oh I kill myself), not least because Henry is such a sweet guy I don't think I've every actually seen him looking so fierce!

How darling is this post?!?!?! Henry takes karate! I love it.
You & Dell are the coolest parents for getting Henry involved in this fully awesome sport. Every kid's dream!
