Photo Challenge 2018 – Week 19

We’re a karate family. We all do karate together and have done so for a couple of years. We’re not particularly good at it, but we love the art, both the physical and mental aspects. That’s not to say that it’s easy or that we are all super excited for every class, but it’s been good for our family. My boys participated in a tournament last month and I am just so proud when I see these photos of how far they have come. It takes an incredible amount of courage to get up in front of lots of people, judges and other competitors and perform.

So proud.

Photo Challenge 2018 – Week 7

So I broke a board last week. I thought I would do a self-portrait to commemorate. It’s been a strange mix of emotions since the boys and I completed our rank test and moved on to Purple 1. So proud of them and the work they did. Challenged by new classes and the work that is before us. At the same time, it’s been tough to carry on without Colin on this part of the journey. I miss having him in class and sharing the experience. It’s only a temporary thing, but it’s not fun. Heal quickly, My Dear!
