Brown Belt time

My hubby is now an official Brown Belt! He'll be a brown belt for a few years I think. They have different degrees. Wesley "woke up" the belt and presented it to him in a small ceremony. I used my external flash on these photos and am pretty happy with how they came out. Maybe a bit too bright, but they are much better then the ones I use with my built in flash. Hope I didn't blind the sensei ;)

Before I post the photos I just have to talk a little about this school. It's AWESOME! We live in a very small town so to find this gem only a few minutes down the road was such a blessing. Sandi and Dave not only are the boys karate instructors, but they also have become wonderful friends. When times were tough financially while I was "laid off" and pregnant with Lani they helped us out by creating a "payment plan" and even conveniently forgot to cash a check. One of the many perks of a small school! They are in it for the families and relationships, not just the money.

Wendy, I don't think the pictures are too bright...I think they're great! What kind of an external flash did you get? I'm looking to buy one, but there are many to choose from.

Awesome! It's so cool that Michael and Wesley do this together, what a bonding experience for them!

And your photos are fine, quite being so hard on yourself!
