We had an impromptu belt test for Peanut today. He went to his last class and Sifu knew we were moving so he tested him early (and didn’t charge the usual fee!)
All I wanted was for him to test and pass without the green belt given to him but Sifu Sam insisted on the full test and ceremony. We will miss this place and all the sifus there.
We also recreated a photo that we took 3 years ago when they first started.
Look how cute they were back in 2018!
The kids got their flu shots today and they were so brave.
I love Peanut’s reactions. Despite the faces, he didn’t cry and was all smiles afterward.
To celebrate, they were treated to boba. Yay!
Peanut received his yellow belt today.
Janie also received her green belt!
Here’s the group photo. That’s Peanut in the front giving his serious kung fu face.
The kids chose pho for dinner tonight and they always eat well here.
We had dinner in Oakland Chinatown today. Peanut ate a few boiled peanuts and then put a few in his truck.
He also drew a bunch of mean kung fu faces.
For lunch, we went to The Pig and the Lady. The kids had some yummy pho and made paper airplanes.
After lunch, the kids all got candy canes. Peanut is bummed out because his was broken.
Not sure what that face is for but he looks pretty mean in that sandbox today.
The teachers had reported that Peanut was not loving Picture Day last week. They had him go last and he was saying “NO!” up until the very end. Here’s the result.
He looked ok in the class picture. We will not be ordering photos this time around. Luckily they do it again in the Spring.
Peanut had picture day today. He wore his polo shirt and Dada did his best to style his crazy hair. I think he even used gel!
I’m curious to see how the photos come out. The teachers had him go last because he was not very cooperative this morning.
