:LIFE: She's Interplanet Janet...

Ever since Kaitlin's last performance of Beauty & the Beast last March, she's been anxiously awaiting another theatrical opportunity.

It finally arrived with auditions for another children's production - School House Rock Live! - earlier this month.

Thankfully, she was cast. Although I tried to prepare her for the possibility that she might not get a part with over 130 kids auditioning, I am quite sure she would have been inconsolable had that actually happened.

So, she is in Shulie's Group and practices have begun.

At this point, all that they've had a chance to begin working on is their performance of Interplanet Janet...and guess who Interplanet Janet is...that's right - Kaitlin - for the first weekend's performance anyway. (Another girl gets the role for the second weekend as Allison, the director, really tries to spread the opportunities around.)

Needless to say, she's pretty pumped about the whole thing.

Can't wait to find out what other acts her 'team' will have in store...

In other Kaitlin-related news, she's still keeping busy with dance class every Saturday. We just found out what her costume for the spring recital looks like and it's pretty darling. It will be quite the photo opportunity!

And, as if she doesn't have enough to do, I signed her up for softball on Sunday.

It was either that or soccer (photos here and here/funny video of kids chasing ball here) again and she decided she wanted to try something new so we'll see how that goes. Thankfully, it doesn't get underway until a few clinics in March and the season runs in early summer.

I know nothing about softball, but I suppose we'll have to go shopping for glove now soon. Do they make them that little?
