Opie comes back in a few hours from a long weekend away with friends. Of course I have missed her. I will be happy to see her goofy face, and to give her hugs, but my big question is: did she practice?
Trying hard here to instill the idea that practicing always happens – it’s slotted into the schedule first, and then we work around it. But she’s always had me there to help remind – suggest – push her to get started. This will be an interesting experiment, and I wonder how it will turn out.
Updated after arrival: she had a great time, swimming, kayaking and jet-skiing, but she did practice once, so, yay her! Home today in time to get a session in, and she had done one before leaving, so only one missed. Not so bad when you are a young guest in someone else’s home.
