Anne's karate belt promotion!

It was so wonderful to see Anne beaming last evening!

John, Katie, and I attended her belt promotion ceremony and it was such a great experience!  I just love how her Karate teacher emphasizes self confidence!!  It is the best thing that Anne has done!!!!

I would like to share some of the moments from her ceremony:
 Mr. Bittner getting his class ready for the big event!

 The class demonstrating their moves.

 More karate moves.

 Anne can actually do a 1 handed push up!!!!!Go Anne!

 Getting her yellow belt.  YAY!

 Shaking hands with her teachers.

 Being silly with dad . . .

 and mom!

 Putting on her new belt.

 Holding her white belt in the "past."

 Congratulations class!!!!!
