Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Kata Champion

Pickle won his first kata competition Sunday after several years of trying. He did a great job and was really proud of himself.
Of course, with the exception of a time or two when he messed up and had to start over, I've always thought he did a good job.
But, this was the first time he didn't have this one judge (who has obviously not been one of Pickle's best fans). I think it made the difference in him going from finishing in the bottom of the group to being the top winner.
He was judged fairly and he stepped up. I am very proud of him. I think this is what he needed to get him fired up about karate again. He's been doing it since he was about 9 or 10 and I think he was getting a little burned out. So, maybe this will encourage him.
His siblings were excited for him and were cheering loudly.
And, that smile couldn't get much bigger. Neither could the trophy!
