When I picked him up at rehearsal, he was calm. This gave me the courage to approach the director and ask how it went. I told her how he's loving the experience, and she said, "Oh yes, the kids are loving..."
I expected her to say "it, too."
Instead, she said, "working with him."
I nearly fell over after what happened last week.
Relief! Happiness! Joy!
Guess there will be good days and not-so-good days. I can live with that.
