Jacob successfully tested for his green belt today at karate. He was super excited because this is a pretty big milestone: he moved from the beginner class to the intermediate, which, aside from meaning he’s no longer a “little kid” also means he now gets sparring gear and an awesome new blue uniform. He worked especially hard over the last four weeks to bring himself up to standard for the test, and I was thrilled to see him perform today with only a tiny misstep at the very end of his form.

My kid is awesome.
(and yes, he totally broke that board with his foot. first try.)
