Purple Belt in Karate!

Cole did his belt test in class last week and we were so excited to find out today that he has moved on to his “Full Purple” belt in Karate! He worked really hard for that belt, he has been working hard for a long time to earn that belt.

Way to go Cole!

Moved up to the next Karate Class

Cole is happy to be in his friend Max’s class again. He was a bit nervous about all the other kids in the class that he didn’t know yet. It didn’t affect his performance though, his instructor said he had good focus and did well in class.

New Belt in Karate Today!

Cole did his belt test in class last week and we were so excited to find out today that he has moved on to his “Half Purple” belt (Purple with a White center stripe) in Karate! He worked really hard for that belt, he showed excellent focus and remembered all the moved that he had to do to move on to the next belt.

Way to go Cole!

Getting His New Belt Bowing After Receiving His Belt

Busy Day and New Glasses… Again

We had a very busy day today. In the morning Cole and I went to the Naturopath for Allergy treatment, this was time consuming but not painful, Cole did say that it tickled. :)

We had a bit of downtime, then met Daddy at Karate to watch Cole test for his next belt. He already had 3 strips on his White belt so if he can show good focus and do the moves well he will move to the next level! We were pleased to see that he paid attention during the whole testing class, even when it wasn’t his turn. When it was his turn he did well, following instructions quickly and accurately. We are sooo proud of him!

After Karate we went to the optometrist for Cole’s eye exam. They had suggested that it would be a good idea to have his eyes checked before getting new glasses just in case the prescription had changed. I am full of respect for the optometrist, she spent a lot of time with Cole making sure she got the ‘real’ answer of what he could or couldn’t see with and without his glasses. Even though he was tired and just wanted to rest or play games with her, she kept him on track and determined his new prescription. I was pleased to see that one of his eyes had actually improved since his last exam.

After dinner at the mall we went to LensCrafters to order his new glasses. We had scoped them out earlier so they just had to pass the Daddy test before we ordered them. The glasses were approved and we ordered them and had them ‘pre-fitted’ so that I could come back later and pick them up while Cole was sleeping. We wanted him to be able to put them on as soon as he woke up in the morning. If they don’t fit quite right we can always go back in for a final adjustment.

Received 3rd stripe on his belt in Karate

Received “Effort” badge in Karate

Started taking “Lion Cubs” Level Karate lessons

Cole has been asking to take Karate lessons ever since he saw “Kung Fu Panda” at the theatre in June 2008. We figured that if he was able to consistently ask for lessons for almost a year he deserved to take them. Finding Karate Classes so close to our home was a nice bonus.
