Parker received his blue belt in karate last night. I left early from religion to go see him receive his belt but I was a half an hour to late. They used to do it after they did practice but this time they did it before. Kelly told everyone he called Parker smiley because he is always smiling during practice. Parker has decided that he wants to take a break from karate and that is okay with me. One less thing to go and do of an evening. I don't imagine his decision will last long though.
