I’m so very proud of Quintus. He has been home for the entire week due to a horrible sinus infection. High fevers and terrible headaches all the time.
Yet he wanted to grade today. He felt that he had worked hard and that he needed to try even though he was feeling really sick.
I could see that he was battling to concentrate and was weak but he manage to get his second black stripe anyway. I’m very proud.
It’s also bittersweet. He has decided that he doesn’t want to continue with karate next year. He has been doing it for 2,5 years now. I have tried to convince him to go on but he doesn’t want to.
Maybe after the long December holiday he will feel differently about it but if not I’ll be okay with it. Sticking out for 2, 5 years at such a young age is great. I’m very proud of him.
