Rachel had basketball tryouts today. They were to identify who would be returning to the team for next year's basketball team. The group that makes the team will play on a tournament team during the month of June.
She had to do some dribbling drills while wearing special glasses that make it so she can't see the ball while dribbling. Essentially blinders. Helps to improve dribbling with your head up.
Rachel is expected to make the team. She will also be trying out for soccer...likely in mid or late June.
Aletta played an aggressive and fun game of soccer tonight. She scored 2 goals.
Aletta's U-6 soccer team plays 4 v 4 soccer, and is made up of boys and girls. Surprisingly, Aletta isn't afraid to charge in there, steal the ball away from the boys, and take it down the field. She is very little (about 8 inches shorter than her tallest opponent), but is very fast.
Its the only game I've been able to watch due to conflicts between Rachel's games and Aletta's on Saturday mornings.
Note the toothless grin of the happy girl!
These pictures are of Aletta posing after the game was over.
Leah had a great opportunity to sing at her Middle School's "Coffee House" event. She had been working with Ms. Jackson, her choir teacher and private voice lesson teacher, on a song from Les Miserables to sing.
Leah did a wonderful job of singing "On My Own" sung by the character Eponine from that musical.
This picture is of her waiting with one of her friends before her opportunity to sing.
