Great post. I totally understand your part--the feeling like you're going to throw up from the worry and nervousness. But, then, YAY! Great result. And I bet it will be the confidence-booster the instructor promised.

Jennifer Merrick

Oh yea!!!! I was thinking about you guys all weekend. Noah, you rock!

rkmama

Go Noah!
My daughter has some mild- moderate sensory and vestibular disorders that can have a big impact on her attention and focus at times. This can cause a lot of stress for her and us in situations like this but she also can surprise us when we least expect it. Looks like Noah has an awesome capacity to surprise as well.

Jenn

Yay, Noah!

SarahB

Yay, Noah! :^)

Amanda O'Brien

Cyn

adequatemom

CONGRATULATIONS!!! The pic where he shakes the teacher's hand just KILLS me. You must be exploding with joy and pride and love! YAY NOAH!!!

Susan

NICE JOB NOAH!!!!!!!!!!

Brandi

Yay Noah!!! So happy for you little dude!! When I took Tae Kwon Do (back in the day haha) there were many children in there who had attention issues. Back then it wasn't really known as ADD/ADHD they were just considered hyper..BUT no matter what it is referred to as now (or then)the martial arts is a WONDERFUL thing to have children involved in. Focus is one of the key lessons taught and this will help him. I just know it. Plus self respect and for others...I just love it and I can't wait to hear more of the 'Grasshoppers' adventures (hmmm children's book?) YAY NOAH!!!

Lilly

Awwwww! Congrats! This is HUGE! <3

Kristin

Way to go Noah! Martial Arts are such an incredible way of teaching discipline and concentration and it looks like he is going to excel.

Danell

Yay! Congratulations you guys! Way to go Noah! We knew you could do it! :)

lis

GO NOAH! GO NOAH!! That is so awesome!

Catherine

Yay, Noah!! A grandma in NC is blinking happy tears for you - I knew you could do it!

Leah

Aw gee. After the last post, hard not to tear up with this one.

kim

You go, Noah! :D
Um, the amount that I love your kids is not at all creepy. I promise. *sniffle*

Liana

alejandra

Claudia

I'm so happy to hear that he got his gold belt! Congrats, Noah!

Chris

Yay for Noah!!! I recognize Ms. Lana in the picture! My son did karate at a different location when she used to work there. We LOVED her!! Way to go, Noah!

Brigette

Yay Noah! :-D

Missie

Do you see me crying over here? Did you hear the sudden indrawn breath when I saw the first picture of that precious precious boy in his uniform? Did you see me crossing my toes and wishing hard while frantically scrolling down to the end of your post?

So very very happy that the instructors had the good sense to see what all of us already know. The Noah rocks so hard his belt should have been made of actual gold. I could barely be prouder if he were one of my own punks. Love. That. Kid.

Alberta grandma

This could prove to be one of the most important things he ever does - sometimes its the little things like passing first time that has the most impact. Good job Noah and good job parents for letting him try

Paula

Great job Noah!

Monique

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!! Noah, you made my day!!

Chelsie

I'm so happy Noah passed his test! I honestly thought that had he not, we would have seen a headline along the lines of "Local Woman Chokes Out Karate Instructor After Son Denied Gold Belt." So yay!

Plano Mom

YAY NOAH! May your furniture and your ears survive the test.

Have some ice packs handy for when he figures out the coffee table doesn't break like the board did.

Karen

Yay! Is there anything cuter than a little kid in a karate uniform? (Are they called uniforms?) It makes me wish my husband would agree to let our boys take tae kwon do. So. Damn. Adorable.

Kris H.

GO NOAH!!! YOU DID IT!!!

mrs. q.

YIPPPPEEEE!

Jen L.

Way to go, Noah!!! I just cried a little.
