Last week, I shared a Silly Monkey Story with photos of our children with Santa at this year's taekwondo Holiday party, but I wanted to share additional photos of the belt ceremony.  Our daughter will not be testing until February because she started taking classes two months after her brothers did.  Both boys were extremely excited to receive their first promotions at this studio.

Below are photos of them receiving first their belts, then their certificates, and then raising their right hands to take their oaths.  Our youngest son had such a goofy look on his face the whole time because he could not contain his glee.  Our oldest son was much more serious because he understood this was a formal ceremony.

Both boys were so proud to wear their new belts to their next classes and my husband and I were extremely proud of them as well.

    The grin is priceless, you can clearly see his excitement! Congratulation on receiving your First Taekwondo Belt, I am sure your daughter will be receiving hers in the upcoming months. Takes a lot of discipline to complete a belt. Had our big guy in the little kids classes.. sadly it just was not for him. I enjoyed watching the kids go thru their Kata's.. it takes a lot of focus and concentration to got thru them.

    @Denise Taylor-Dennis: Hi Denise! I wanted to let you know that our oldest son started TKD at a different studio when he was 3. He loved it, but when it got harder, he was too young to remember all the patterns, etc . . . I think the ideal age to start would be 5. :)
