Wax on Wax off

For the past couple of months the boys have been learning the art of KA-RA-TE!!! They quickly decided that It was the sport for them when they realized they could hit each other and not get into trouble. Last Friday they had a ceremony where they got their yellow belts. They were really excited about this and took it very seriously. We were really happy that Grandma and Harrison came because we didn't realize that we were to take part in the ceremony. So we all tag teamed it. First Scott took Harper while I worked the video camera. Then I took Harper(He was teething) while Scott and Harrison learned Karate moves from the boys. This was my favorite part. Ollie took it so seriously. I kinda got choked up. Then We gave Harper to Nancy so we could present the boys with their yellow belts. Was the evening hectic?...yes. But this is what we parents do. We take screaming babies to long ceremonies, all for the sake of the kids. 
This is us presenting the boys with their yellow belts. Pictures courtesy of Harrison. (Thanks dude)

Hey did you know Brian is a black belt? In Kung Fu. Tell that to Max and Ollie so maybe that'll up his "cool" factor with them. :)
