Flautist in Training

I'm proud of my girl and all the hard work she's put into music this past year.

I would like to brag about how exceptionally gifted she is and how she never forgets to practice and how she was hand-picked to participate in the district honor band.

But I can't.  Because she's just a kid.  And she often forgets to practice, even after I have reminded her.  And while her skills are certainly improving, I can't claim that she's ready for Julliard quite yet.

And while she WAS hand-picked to perform with the honor band, it wasn't in the traditional sense of the phrase.  It went more like this, "Raise your hand if you want to be in the honor band."  

But she did great.  And hardly made any squeaky sounds during the show.
