It ended up being a week of celebrations for Kaira! In addition to her birthday, we hosted a Book Recital to celebrate her accomplishment in finishing Suzuki Piano Volume I. She played her full repertoire, and showed lovely poise in her speaking too. (Each piece was preceeded by a brief introduction Kaira scripted herself, telling her audience a bit about the composer, or other background information.)
It was a fun evening, with cousins (also Suzuki piano students), aunts, uncles, grandparents, and her piano teacher in attendance.
