On Tuesday night at Senior Training GKR Region 10 much to my surprise I graded to 4th Kyu a Red Belt in GKR Karate. I was so pleased that night I text Tracey and she could not believe it. My friends Sempi Tony and Scotty and Sempi Andrew all graded up levels as well. My good friend Sempi Tony Carter let me borrow his red belt so I could wear to Wednesday night's class at the Forest lake Dojo with Sensei Blair and Leighanne. A thank you to Sensei Kelvin and the other Sensei's. I have only one injury a broken small toe on my right foot.
Last night Tracey and I went to the Springfield State High School Arts Department Performance of The Roaring 20'S. Tracey and I arrived about the 6:30pm mark and found a car park to both of our amazement as we thought about parking on the street then walking to the event held at the Springfield State School only 2mins drive from Emily's school. The night finished about 10:30pm after all the children had danced and sung with a couple of drama performances. Emily performed with the school choir and sang "Back to Black" with Hannah and the year 9 magna music group.
Tracey was very proud and I kept telling her the talent comes from my side of the family. Andrew
Today was the day we arrived in Australia. After and rather harrowing experience with the earthquakes in Christchurch we decided to leave our home country New Zealand and make a new life for Tracey the Kids and myself in Brisbane. It has been the best decision we made and love living in Australia, especially since the winters in Queensland aren't as cold as the where in Christchurch. Today I have finally setup my home gym after going to GKR Karate this morning.
Photos are of the plane flight over.
