Lucy had an all-day fencing tournament yesterday. It was great to get the practice. This was a friendly tournament between another city.
I don’t know what they call it, but here she is hooking in. She’s the one on the left.
En Garde! Etes vous prêts? Allez!
She did her best with this match. She is a little short, but has a few tricks to get some points.
Of course we broke for lunch. Sadly, I didn’t take a photo of the most amazing “chocolate sausage.” With chocolate, chopped marshmallows and some bits of biscuit ( that’s “cookie” in American ), he rolled a log. Some powdered sugar to simulate a casing, then cut into little rounds, it looked exactly like a dried sausage. And it tasted great too!
After the results were in, awards and presents were given out. Then, we all ate cake. Galette des rois, specifically. This is the one with a prize. The one who eats, but does not swallow, the prize wears the crown. Shockingly, both Z and Lulu bit the trinket. This never happens. Usually I have one to three tantrums with respect to the unfairness of it all.
She fenced well. She learned something. I took some video for her to review with her father. Sometimes, it’s nice to see yourself as you fence or dance to analyse your movements.
