Peach State says: Testing Day!

With coffee in hand I find a seat in the already full arena. The subjects are gathering to run through their form one last time before the formalities begin. The introductions of the Master Black Belt and Instructor Black Belts will be followed rules and order. The subjects will, in unified response and motions, show off their forms and self-defense steps. All dressed in white with colored belts of rank in hopes of gaining the prize of upward movement in belt rank. The concern and fear can be seen in the eyes and across their crinkled brows. There is no forgetting that today is “Testing Day!”

I will let you know how my son does…
Have a great day!

Peach State

About justbetweencousins

We are first cousins who live farther apart from each other than we would like. We thought this blog would give us a chance to visit with each other as well as maybe share a few insights about life. We are both middle aged and until recently both of us had kids the same age (nearly grown). But then the Peach State cuz adopted a son, so she has four now. Heart of Dixie cuz has two daughters. We have a couple of things which are prominently in common (although I'm sure there are actually more): We vacation at our Mema's beach house in Panama City Beach, Florida - until recently, we did so with all of our kids. We both sing - although Heart of Dixie cuz is not currently singing anywhere right now. We both write. We are both Christians, although Peach State cuz is Baptist, and Heart of Dixie is currently floating about between the Anglican church, the Methodist church, and the Episcopalian church. Long story.
