Today is mom's test day at Karate. She is going for another stripe on her belt. Five more and she gets to test for Third Degree Black Belt. That will be the end of next year.
The really amazing thing about this is that mom had Lateral Release Surgery on December 10th and only got back on the mat February 5th. She missed FIVE weeks of class and still managed to get in enough classes to take her test. (Normally mom takes 4 classes a week, she had to do twice a week for 5 weeks and then three times a week for 5 weeks.) I know mom will do awesome but she tends to worry about these things. You know how moms are.
