Willow played in her first guitar recital today.
I am amazed. Awe-struck. Astonished.
Much of the credit goes to Willow's sweet guitar teacher. On the way to her latest lesson, Willow said to me, "I decided that I don't want to do the recital." I said, "Oh, that's fine, sweetie. Just tell Maja that when we get there." We walk in the door to Maja's house, Maja greets Willow and then asks, "Are you excited about your guitar recital?" Willow pauses for a couple of seconds, then quietly answers, "Yes."
Ample pre-concert romping is absolutely essential:
Before the concert began, I gave Willow my camera to keep her entertained. This is how she saw her own first guitar recital:
Guitar Music (Willow performed "Little Bunny," as translated from Serbian
and transcribed by her Serbian guitar teacher)
Guitar (held by Daddy)
