Congrats Nas!

Nas graduated to another belt rank last night at her martial arts class. She has one more belt to go before she is halfway to a black belt. It was 2.5 hours of physical testing for Nas & her teens class before they found out if they made it or not. Nas & Lauren

The 'teens' (& instructor on far right)

It wasn't all sugar & spice for Nas last night. She was so excited to graduate. For some reason, the assistant there (also named Erin) forgot/misplaced Nas' belt & graduation certificate. Nas was hot under the collar - everyone's name had been called but hers. I was sweating too - wondering why her name wasn't being called. Finally, some classmates spoke up and asked, "what about Naseem?" Gigi, the head instructor, was so embarrased and called Nas up. Here is that little exchange. The good part: Nas got her belt!! Woo Hoo!

Heidi - it is so funny you mentioned "chicks" in your comment. Nas has a new necklace with a charm that says: I'm a cute chick (with a pix of a baby chick). It is adorable and she loves it.

Someday, I want to be a chick that kicks a$$. I'm glad Nas is sticking with it.
