She is now sparring with adults. She came home with a bruise & scratch along her jaw from taking a punch in the face. Keep in mind that she is the shortest person in her entire school grade. Next is her brown belt rank, I'm sure she will be working very hard to get to that (why?? because then she is that much closer to black belt...the holy grail).
She came home from fighting and began painting a pastoral scene. Working to get the leaves and shading just right.
I'll never understand her.
