Two more weeks of school stuff (maybe a tad more for grading) and then 66 weeks of sabbatical! (Yes, I counted. Twice. Using two different methods.)
I have spring fever, but almost no grading this weekend, just sunshine, violin practice, and some reading!
And housework, lots of housework!
In violin news, Strings passed me on the first piece in Book 4, so now I'll focus on the second piece, on shifting practice, vibrato practice, double stop practice, and trying not to hold my hands so tightly!
I'm thrilled to be done with that piece, but also, I was just getting to like it again. A couple of weeks ago, Strings started me on the second piece, and I was balancing both, and it was just what I needed to deal with my frustrations with the first piece and really work through the hard parts more effectively. I'm so lucky to have such a good teacher!
