12 hours

My children had a 12-hour karate seminar on Saturday, from 7:00 a.m to 7:00 p.m. My husband and I did not have to stay with them, so we had a "free" day. We puttered around the house, went out for lunch, and ran some errands. While we were out, I bought the children a little treat. Aren't these cute? And so yummy, too. I am a sucker for ordinary treats being dolled up for a holiday. I managed to leave the packages unopened until the children got home. Just barely.

My children were required to attend the karate seminar as part of their training for black belt. My daughter is a first degree black belt candidate, and my son is a second degree black belt candidate. They've been in extra training for the past few months, and if they fulfill all the requirements and pass their tests, they will be promoted in November.
