The Karate Girl

Hope started karate classes yesterday and she loves it.

Apologies for photo quality but they're camera phone through glass while everyone is moving.

You GO, Hope!

You're the karate kid! And I bet in no time you'll have your black belt!

Great shots, Dianne! I love how you framed them.

X to you, Hope, Athena, Siren and Isadora!

Feet of furry! So they don't let you be in the same room with them? Seems kind of odd, but then they probably don't want family members getting hit with pieces of flying wood when the kids start breaking boards. ;)

She is awesome. Concentration will win the day. I expect great things from "our" Miss Hope. Molly says Woof! You Go Girl!

Sylvia K said...

My heart just soared when I saw these pictures of the beautiful and amazing Hope!

LL Cool Joe said...

Wow she's really into it! My younger daughter did Judo for a view weeks and never really got into it, but I can see Hope's really taking it seriously!

Linda Reeder said...

Wow! How cool is that!

Lily Hydrangea said...

Wow! Hope has really grown since the last time I was here! She
Looks so fierce in her practice, a very strong young girl. I went back and see you have a new granddaughter too! Congratulations Dianne, and I hope you are feeling 100%.

Great action shot of Hope, I can almost hear her shouting "Hay Ya!"

Happy Elf Mom said...

She. Is. ADORABLEEEEE!!!

That's awesome! It's easy to tell that she takes direction well, which is vitally important. I've seen kids who can't sit still for two seconds to learn. Hope looks very much the opposite.

Dang that's cute! I remember when our three older grands took Karate (the ones who are grown up married most of them now)... our granddaughter was very good but she wouldn't raise her voice. Her sensei (I'm not sure I'm spelling that right after all this time) just could not make her yell! Her brothers had no problem. (Kelsey is still pretty soft spoken, now that she's a grown up mother -- but her boys obey her...she doesn't have to raise her voice! )

Hope is absolutely adorable.

Not that fuzzy, and too great not to keep forever! Nice photos. I envy your ability to be there. Gin

She's my hero.

Oh wow, Dianne! Hope is growing up! What a cutie. I'd not want to get on her wrong side, though. I'd probably end up a karate pancake!

Hilary said...

Oh my.. she looks so confident and in charge. What a love!
