Bragging, The Piano Recital and More

final practice
before recital
Now, for the second year, I had the privilege and pleasure to attend the piano recital of my granddaughter. Now that she has two years of piano study under her belt, I see such a great improvement over last year. Unlike her older sister, she didn't try a number of instruments before the piano. There's something about the piano and her innate drive for perfectionism that suits her nature very well.

Her older sister has settled on the guitar after trying the chalilit, recorder and the electric organ. And her younger brother loves his electric drums. Electric drums? I had no idea there was such a device/instrument until one was bought for him. Yesterday he performed for me, having more fun changing the sounds and effects even more than doing the Ringo Starr thing. It's a new world out there. And my younger grandchildren aren't yet up to learning a musical instrument.

P.S. "Icing on the Cake," she's wearing the sweater I bought her in NY!!

How does one translate the Yiddish terms "kvell" and "shep nachas" (nachat?) into Hebrew? May you have many more opportunities to be proud of your grandchildren.

A lot of Israelis understand "kvell" and "shep nachas."
Amen, thanks
