The boys earned their green belts in karate last week! So in one school year, they went from white to yellow to orange 1 to orange 2 to green 1. Way to go boys!! Nicholas continues to be the coaches favorite student ... I think because he's so tiny and so attentive. Most 4 year olds wiggle and giggle through practice, but not Nicholas - he never misses a thing!! And Jaden still loves to show off his middle splits and high kicks ... look out Rockettes!

Video clip from the test for their green belts, check out Jaden’s kick which start around 0:55:
This next video clip is from their practice last week. These partner jumps are my absolute favorite thing to watch! First Jaden jumps over Nicholas – knocking Nicholas down most every time. Sensei tries to tell Nicholas to be strong. Then Nicholas tries to jump over Jaden – HILARIOUS!!! Bless his heart, he tries SO HARD!!! He is successful once. It’s the same week after week after week. It cracks me up!
