The peas are giant and we just got the tomatoes and peppers in. This year we added a Rosemary bush and I hope that it will bless the land of Spencer View long after we leave.
After all that work Rocky had to recoup by listening to some tunes and basking in the rays of the sun. A neighbor asked me if she was okay because she was kind of being sulky. My response was that she thinks she is a teenager. Now that she has her iPod shuffle she is really pulling off the ruse. I try and remind her that she is 7 but like a typical teenager she just rolls her eyes. She plays the part well for 20 minutes or so and then she gets restless and will go back to playing with the kids. I guess you have to work yourself into it.
Rocky participated in the Fiesta at her school. This year they performed the Kalinka Malinka which is apparently a traditional Russian dance. On the way there she told me that she had seen all the other classes dance and that her class was the very best. I admired her confidence but was sure that every kid felt the same way. Nope, we watched the whole thing and her dance really was the best. The whole school seemed to know it and the crowd was going wild. All the dances were cute but Maestra Field's class stole the show. I feel bad for Rocky that she is having all these great moments at such an early age. First after the Vitamix she hit the plateau for Christmas, then she had probably the best soccer coach she will ever have, and now she has hit Buena Vista fame and she is only in first grade. What is she going to do with the rest of her life?
