Her first two practices were rained out (and the temps were in the 40s—brrrr!), so in desperation, the coach scheduled an extra practice this past Sunday. They had beautiful weather and the girls had such a fun time.
One part Rosie didn't like so much: in their scrimmage, there was an odd number of girls, so the coach asked her to be a "floater," meaning she was on the team of whomever held the ball. Practically, this meant the other girls didn't know which team she was on and nobody passed the ball to her. That's a tough position to play, but someone has to do it!
The next practice is tonight and her first game will be this Saturday. Cross your fingers for good weather!

I knew my darling readers are thirsting for more art, so quench yourselves on this lovely pen and ink drawing, composed by Rosie, titled "The Egg Hunt."
If you are having trouble with the penmanship or the narrative, I believe this is her characters' dialog:
Rosie: Hey, mom I found one!
Mom: Dear, there's some more up there. (pointing to impossible-to-reach-spot)
The Easter bunny, pictured amazingly close to our dear protagonist, is very nicely drawn, don't you think?

her 2nd grade "living wax museum"
(complete with blue sticker "buttons" to
activate their speeches) on Friday.
Based on facts from an O'Keeffe
biography, I coached her to say,
"I burnt my early works because they
were derivative," and "I wear all black
so the critics will take me seriously."
She was excellent! Looking very
serious in this photo... She painted her
O'Keeffe-esque prop all on her own.
