The Karate Kid

Last Saturday Hayden tested for his brown belt in karate. He has been taking lessons since he was 4 years old. I love how they teach the kids "stranger danger" and to kick, scream and run away just in case they ever find themselves in a bad situation. He has done very well over these last 4 years and now at 8 1/2 received his brown belt. Its a long road to his black belt, at least another 1 1/2 years, but he loves it and it has given his self confidence, balance, staminia and something to strive for. Congrats to our grandson on his achievements.

Here he was at 4 years old when he was just starting

Here he is now at 8 1/2 with his brown belt.
