|My new Senior Green belt!|
There were 18 students testing last night. Of the 18, 14 were under ten years old, and 3 more between the ages of 10 and 18. I was the only bona fide adult in the group! Love being the 'old lady' trying to keep up with all the kids...did my best to represent for the old fogies of the world.
(As a side note, shortly before a test I always get a pedicure to match the belt I am testing for ...it's a tradition. Right now I am walking around with what is essentially a French pedicure in forest green and black...I got a very strange look from the non-English speaking Vietnamese nail lady when I explained what I wanted her to do! Maybe next time I should bring a picture of the belt so she doesn't think I'm completely cuckoo.)
Thing One also earned his new belt--his is plain green but otherwise looks like mine. We went out for a celebratory treat after our test...salted caramel ice cream with toasted almonds for me and Oreo ice cream with gummybears for him. Yum. And no guilt whatsoever: we earned those fair and square! :)
