>From Belle de la Tour:

I just turned 6!  Aunt Mel has made me armor, a sword, and a shield for Boffer
fighting, and my Mom says that she won't yell at me if I start learning to hit
people at the University of Houston practice!

[MOM'S NOTE: Belle will probably be going through armor inspection/correction
this Tuesday.  There is always *something* that is missed or doesn't fit quite
right, and isn't caught until you're standing on the field.  
She will also need to learn the pre-fighting basics from any chivalric fighter
willing to get her started.  (I've taken the required children's marshalling
class - but I'm not a chivalric fighter.)
After that, she would love an opponent.  
We will be at all the December fighter practices.]
