Just back from the middle grades concert this evening. the_child's class did two string pieces, she on her cello. A bit later they came back as a choir. She and two other girls had a three-voice solo (that can't be the right term?) in the middle of one of their choral pieces. She did wonderfully.
I'm so proud of her, even if she did spend the evening pretending I didn't exist.
(In other news, 1,800 words on "Chain of Stars" before heading off for the concert.)
