The Belt Test

Guess who passed his first belt test in Tae Kwon Do on Saturday?

Ian is now an official Yellow Belt! Woo hoo! I promise you, I don't think I've ever seen him stand still for as long as he did, or sit quietly (without a book) for as long while waiting. Tim and I were definitely more nervous than he was (and we prayed for him together in the van on the way over), not that we thought he'd mess up his form or self-defense skills, but we were mostly worried about the waiting part, when goofing off could cost him the test. Oh we of little faith. Clearly, he knew what he needed to do and went in and did it. And now we're not allowed to talk about it or make any kind of fuss whatsoever(observe Picture #5). Go figure. :-) I told him in my best Jewish-mother fashion, as we arrived at the restaurant with the other families afterward, that we spend the time and the money to schlep him to class twice a week, so we have the right to do some congratulatin.'

Oh, and the reason I'm posting so late about this is that the best photos were sitting on my BIL's camera until last night. He and my sister attended (thanks, guys!) and even my crazy-busy FIL came by for a while to watch. I think Ian had the best paparazzi!
