My Favourite Boy got his yellow belt in karate last night. There were five white belts due to graduate to their yellow belts. They took four of them and they had to follow the instructor in the moves they have learned thus far to show their new skills. Lots of parents were watching. For whatever reason they had My Favourite Boy do his turn by himself with the instructor so all eyes were on him. He did amazing! The whole time I was weepy. He saw too, but that's OK because he has seen me be weepy at things My Favourite Girl has done. I had a smile on my face for hours afterward; I am so proud of him. I heard someone say once that parenthood is the most blissful heart-ache and it's so true.
Now onto this morning, as the post title says. We started with rain; then icy rain; then light snow; and now heavy snow. I played with my camera a bit on the macro setting to take some pictures.
Have a blissful day.
