My Karate Boys

Karate Kittens Pictures, Images and Photos

Well Hubby and Son had their Karate Grading on Thursday night, and they both passed! My son in particular did very well and it was said he showed "Outstanding" commitment. I am so proud of him, given that he was freaking out just a tad. There was another club there with more people and parents, and it was different and team that with an Aspergers kid and you get instant anxiety attack. But he pushed through it and won his next belt. Which is yellow. He practically bowled over the person giving them out when it was his turn to go up, grinning from ear to ear. (later I saw him lovingly stroking the belt whispering "Myy Prescioussss...")

Anyway, I don't know what I was more proud of, that he got his next belt, or that he overcame his anxiety and did his very best. Hubby said he got a little teary-eyed to. aww...
Very proud of my boys:)

So we are going to have to move from this place as the owner is intent on selling it. He is actually going to be doing some work on the house when we get back from our Holiday in Melbourne. So after we do get back we are going to have to pack and look for another place to live most likely. We have decided to stay in this area. No caravans, no buses, just a house. We are going to start something in the new year that requires a fair wad of cash (won't go into it just yet), so we decided to put travel plans on the shelf until a little later on next year.

So Melbourne is in a couple of weeks. In the mean time I am going to be pretty busy, so I wont be on here much. I won't be on a lot in Melbs either. Maybe just a check-in once or twice. So I'm not going to be able to visit everyone while I am so busy and away, but then you get that.


  1. I can't help but feel proud for your boys too! Packing is no fun ( I did it 11 times in the first 11 yrs of marriage! and we're thinking about moving again!) but it will be good for you to be settled. I hope all goes well in Melbourne for you. Hugs and more hugs.

  2. Congrats to the boys on the grading and belts. Having a karate kid myself I know the anxiety that can overtake the kids. My son actually vomited in the last one due to nerves

  3. As someone who has recently moved, you have my sympathies.

    Congrats on the guys getting their belts!

  4. @Mynx Oh no! the poor thing! I hope he got through it ok...
    @Carole Hubby and I have been married for two years and we have moved 3 times! :O Getting a bit excited about Melbourne now. I know I will be having horrid invasive eye tests, but I'm hoping to at least get some answers. Plus I've never been to Victoria state, can't wait to see what all the fuss is about :)

  5. @Vinny.. thankyou. It's a pain in the a**. I know, so proud of my boys :)

  6. Congratulations to your Hubby and Son! :-)
    Good luck with your new home search!

  7. Congratulations to your kittehs.;)

    The blogoshpere will be less spriteous. Hope you have a good time, despite the poking and the prodding.

    My comment didn't post before. ?.

  8. @ChocolateAngel thank you and yes hopefully we wont have to search for too long.
    @Ant :) I'm sure the times when I am not getting poked and prodded will be awesome. Booger.

  9. Yes, I get it but I don't have to like it much (aka will miss you).

  10. @Dbs..awww I miss you guys to when I'm not able to come on here...

  11. That is awesome. There is no better feeling than to see your kids do something special and for them to realize how special it is.

  12. @Cheeseboy I know right! (Was pretty proud of Hubby to :)


I'd love to hear what you have to say :)
