Gold belt

Yesterday, Tyler earned his gold belt in karate! So, he's no longer a white belt. Interestingly, the toughest part of moving up for him was learning to tie his own belt. He was a natural in terms of learning the blocks and kicks and punches, but he had no interest in learning the precise way in which you're supposed to tie your belt. He also had to learn his first "kata". Basically, a kata is a series of moves done in a precise order. We should have Tyler does his kata for you over Christmas - it's pretty cool.

He can also count to ten in Japanese. Loudly.
