Frosted Flakes: Belt Testing Stress

And what made Nebraska stick out to Ochaun Mathis

Both of my boys started doing martial arts in January. We weren’t really sure what to expect when we started, but they have been enjoying it. We started toward the end of the last cycle, so last night was their first opportunity to test for their new belts and rank advancement.

We had no idea what testing was like, so we (meaning my husband and I) were intimidated when we went inside and saw different booths set up with instructors sitting there grading the students while they performed the skills. I didn’t realize how invested I was in the boys passing until after they both did and I instantly felt relief.

I really try to not get too worked up about my kids activities and just enjoy watching them, but sometimes like last night, I get myself a little stressed out.

Here are your flakes.
