Friday Photo Flashback

It is Friday Photo Flashback time again! It is the time that Alicia at More Than Words asks us to dig through our pre-digital photos and share our finds with you.

The one I found has Superman and me doing our very first level testing for advancement in karate. I think it might also have been our last test, too, because we couldn't justify the expense of taking karate and paying for our boys to take karate...guess who got to keep going. Anyway, Buttercup was 8 months old and I was at the studio all the time, so I decided to give it a whirl. It was fun while it lasted.


(For those who are keeping track, it was shortly after this that I decided to dye my hair dark...this was three months before we decided to buy the house we were living in, thus the dark hair in last week's picture!) As I look at the picture, I remember the sensei getting mad at me because we couldn't get my watch off for the testing. I even told him he could try to get it off...it just wouldn't budge. I think he thought I did it on purpose. I have to laugh now, at how seriously he took my transgression.

Ah well, time flies. For more Flashbacks, head over to Alicia's and see what everyone else has dug up.

My boys and I took Karate together for a few years. I remember being concerned that I wouldn't pass each test but I did!

Funny about the watch. I took karate too, but back in the day. It was good while it lasted.
