Cole-Hard work always pays off.

Two years ago-you received your blue belt promotion in karate.

One year ago-tears for not being ready while your peers were and moved on.

Tonight-nothing but MORE tears… but this time happy ones, as you received your purple belt promotion.

Cole, you were on the verge of giving up so many times. But you never did. You kept going. You Pushed through. Which makes this belt promotion, the best one yet. Mama couldn’t be prouder of you kiddo ❤️

A huge thank you to Jeff Beebe for being his rock.

Sensie Jim and Sensie Joe for believing in him. Scott Klinger for all you’ve done over the years. Spotted Leopard for always being honest. And a friend.

Amy Lynn Alvarez Dolan for bringing out the sap in me 🤣.

Congratulations buddy! My busted foot prevented you from jumping in my arms tonight. But I’ll be ready to catch you when you get your brown belt! 🥋
