And today, Jim received his white belt! He went to class last night so that today would be his third class (instead of waiting until Thurs).
And here is a short video (Master Chris didn't give me any warning!)
So official now:
Today, I also received my first stripe (red for character) and Finn received his third black stripe (which means he is one black stripe away from testing for his green belt!). So much going on but it is so much fun doing it together.
We officially joined today as a family. There was a bit of sticker shock but there are five of us and it is such a great experience to be doing as a family.
Nearly half a million babies (1 in 10) are born premature in the US each year which is higher than that of most other developed nations. This is the journeys of our first born son, Finnegan, who was born 14 weeks early and weighed only 1 pound 15 ounces at birth. Of our daugher, Korrigan, who was born a healthy 7 pounds, 7 ounces at 37 weeks. And of our second son, MacKeegan, who was also born at 37 weeks at a whopping 8 pounds, 13 ounces. Our continued adventures reminds us daily how good God is.
