Stepping out

No quilting news.  I didn't even put in one stitch yesterday.  I hate it when that happens!

But I did get to dress up and go out with my kiddos to our annual karate banquet, honoring those who will be testing for their Black Belt this coming Saturday.  It is fun getting dressed up every once in a while!  Well, fun for everyone except Donald.

My kids picked out their own clothes, as they always do.  Jason has a sense of style that I envy, and the confidence to carry it off!

I mean, on election day for Student Council, when the kids had to get up in front of the whole school to give their speeches, he picked out jeans, a white t-shirt, and a vest left unbuttoned.  He looked so COOL!

I love my kids!

Side note: They showed this short 2-minute video at the banquet both this year and last.  I love it.  It rings so true to me.  If you have 2 minutes, take a look.

You're so right, Jason is very stylish! My DH would love seeing him in that hat.
The video was great, thanks for sharing.
