A little bragging about the kids

K was advanced to purple belt last month. Here she's holding her souvenirs - one for katas, one for kamas - from an in-house tournament a week or two earlier. It's something called Shorin-Ryu Kobayashi Karate, I believe, though I have to force myself not to call it Kobayashi Maru Karate....

(She's determined not to let her braces show in pictures these days.)

Her sister A had a skating competition up in Massachusetts last month. The costume in the centre photo was meant to depict a gambler (she was skating to Joplin's "The Entertainer"), though she decided not to wear the sleeve garters. Both her coach and my wife are sure one of those two silvers would have been a gold if A hadn't kept looking at her skates.

Congratulations to you and yours! I have your blog in my RSS feed and it rarely disappoints. Nice to see a bit of the family from time to time.
