30 Minutes in the Life ~ January 2014

 "Thirty Minutes in the Life" will feature ladies from around the world as we capture 30 minutes in our lives as mothers, wives, daughters, sisters and friends {and photographers}.  This is a blog circle so please be sure to visit the next photographer in the circle. 

My son has been wanting to join karate forever.  When Dalton was 8 we signed him up for a Karate Class in the summer but one morning he woke up with extreme hip pain.  We immediately took him to the doctors and he was diagnosed with Perthes Disease, in which his hip joint did not properly form in the shape of a ball and was causing him extreme pain.  We went through a few months of Physical Therapy with restrictions of no running or being extremely active (I bet you can guess how difficult that was for an 8 year old boy in the Summer).  We are happy to say that all has healed correctly and we were able to sign him up again this past Fall (he's now 10). He was just promoted to a yellow belt and we were extremely excited.  I wanted to share the excitement with you all.

About "30 Minutes in the Life":  In the life of a photographer, whose art is created in tiny fractions of a second, thirty minutes is a sustained thought. Thirty minutes, the length of a child's ballet class, a quick sauce's simmer, a commute, is long enough to witness change and short enough to be over before you know it.  We offer you here our monthly results of thirty minutes of watching and waiting and recording, of rendering permanent those fractions of a second that slip past in the time it takes to watch a television show.  Thirty minutes in the life.

Stacy, I'm so happy he can continue his dream and that all is well. I love the joy and focus on his face. Wonderful job!
Glad to hear that your son is well and can do his karate. I know from my son how scary those kind of announcements are. I remember my brother doing karate because my mother was told it would give him the discipline to breath properly and since he was asthmatic he needed that discipline. I also remember spending a lot of time watching the training's. Wonderful photo's I love the expressions on his face.
