my kids are turning yellow

So, last night at karate, The Princess and Mr 9 got the results from their grading last week.

The Princess received her 10th kyu white belt which means she has a white belt with a yellow ribbons round each end. Here she is receiving her certificate from her instructor -- I can't show you his face because we have to protect his identity as Super Sensei.

Mr 9 received his 9th kyu yellow belt, so he gets a full yellow belt. And a certificate.

They were SO excited. They love karate, they love training, and the group is almost like family, with funny 'uncles' and some nice 'aunties' and a bunch of 'cousins' of all ages. I'm really glad I made the decision to take them, and seeing them do so well at something they love is worth all the effort. Even the ironing.


  1. YAY!! Congratulations Princess and Mr 9.

  2. Very proud of Jack and Katie!!! Yellow is almost my favourite colour!!! ;o) xxxxxxx Auntie K

  3. That is terrific Toni Congrats to them both xxx

  4. Congratulations to them. I wish my son had stuck with his lessons, he was really good.

  5. Go kids! You've inspired me to get my kids into karate when they're a bit older. Obviously I won't be ironing though...
