the smile of accomplishment

Opie went back for a quick second lesson this afternoon. She needed to work on her third recital piece. It’s a piece she chose as a reward: Demons, by Imagine Dragons. She’s been able to play her part for a while, but today was one of the first days she has been able to work with Teacher playing piano accompaniment.

Despite it being late in the afternoon, and into her second hour of playing oboe today, she was focussed and attentive. But the best thing was when she shot me a little smile: “I’ve got this.”
