It’s late, or early and I was going through some pics that were on my phone. I wish I took more pictures and I refuse to put up pics of my kids on the internet. So I have two to share with everyone.
This pic is from this weekend. My older kids have been doing Aikido for years from the same Sensei for many years. My oldest tested for the belt below brown belt (aka second blue) and my daughter was testing for her yellow (a “teen” belt) that is somewhere about in the middle of the ranks. It is hard to find a standard belt ranking in martial arts but what ever. I am so proud and impressed on how they both preformed in their testing. It really was amazing.
But about the pic. I was being “that Mom” taking a ton of pics through the 2.5+ hours of testing. I had turned off my phone for a moment and the zoom setting had reset. This is what I was focusing on and it just seemed kind of cool. It’s the edge of the mat but I thought it looked nifty.
The second pic is from the local hospital. For the circumstances, first, everyone is ok and no that is not my hand in the pic. Someone in the family had a quick trip (if that is possible) to the ER and the room that they placed us in had this “Robo Doc”. I thought it looked like a Dalek from Dr Who and was waiting the entire time for it to move. (I think I might have annoyed the nurses (sorry) when I kept telling them I wanted to see it move.) I knew I was safe from Dr. RoboDalak because it was a short run from it to safety and I knew where the stairs were.) I so wanted to see what that thing could really do (medically). I think it helps with treatment for stroke patients but I just wanted to see it whirl around.
I hope you enjoyed my two little pics into my life. It’s crazy and apparently filled with robots that keep trying to dominate the planet.
