Thing 1 had her first recital and we were very proud of her courage. After having several panic attacks the week before and declaring that she would not perform, she instead practices like mad (without my needing to require it) and did a great job. All the students had the typical German Urkunde afterward, although T2 was too shy to appear for hers.
Afterward, she blew off steam playing with her sister in the grounds of the Embassy where the recital was held (a lawn like this— and the backyard— are what we miss most here in Berlin).
How wonderful. Cherish every moment. My Thing Only is spending the first part of the summer as a teacher's aide to the first and second graders at the Montessori school she attended starting in pre-school. They do grow up way too fast!
