Belt Testing

There are so many reasons why I am proud of Sain. She's a great kid, kind to people, does very well in school, etc. But one of the things I am most proud of is her determination -- she never lets diabetes win and won't let anyone tell her she can't do something.

When we saw Will Cross speak in July he said something that really hit home. "Find the thing you love to do that makes your diabetes secondary and keep doing it." Martial arts makes Sain's disease secondary.

Below you can see a little of my daughter's passion.

(Today was Sain's last PeeWee class -- tomorrow she begins Juniors (ages 10-14) It should be interesting since this will be the first time in her nearly 10 years that she's the youngest in a class.)
