Full Circle

Tonight was our last colour belt class and I’m struggling to get my mind around how we got here.  It really does feel like yesterday, when Sofia celebrated her 6th birthday at the dojang with her friends and I was standing in the entrance with a 4 year old Chiara wrapped around my legs not about to budge.

Robert and Sofia blazed the trail for Chiara and I,  and a lot of mental, physical and emotional growth took place for all of us over the last six years.  Before you know it, and in the company of family and friends we were off to yellow stripe……
