Here in Oz we've just started reschooling after a term break; Ditz's music puts us on the public schedule, more or less. So what has Ditz learnt?
~That if she flips her pony tail over her face & holds it in place with a cap she can have the fashionably short haircut her mother won't give her.
~That silence is a virtue on long car journeys when you are sharing the back seat with a big brother.
~That having an emotional meltdown due to sickness is a good way to render strong male flute teachers helpless.
~That even grandmothers who complain about the endless singing are proud when you announce you have a 3 word solo at a TTT concert.
~That if you behave like a civilized human being big brothers & sisters don't threaten to half kill you every 10 minutes & turn out to be fun to be with.
Yes, most of this week's highlights were character traits but Ditz has a bigger than life persona & squeezing it into the confines of ordinary life has never come easy for her. She did pretty well this week~ oh, & she did pretty well on the academic front too. Way to go, Ditz!
