Today they started talking about giving out stripes. Warm-ups were brief and we moved right into reviewing the form so we could all start testing for stripes. I still was not confident on my final turns of the form. Thankfully Ms. C was wonderful and got me on the right track. Baby Bear got her first stripe (we need 3 to be able to graduate). She was standing tall! We went through the form step by step with a lot of repetition which ground it into my brain. Next class I will be ready to test for at least my first stripe, if not my second. I can’t believe I am actually talking about stripes and graduation, and dare I say it, a belt of a different color! I am as excited as any of the kids in the class!
