Yes, Suzanne can be a strict teacher, but she has certainly helped my girls to improve their vocal capacities. Rachel is still occasioned to be frightened of her, poor girl, and Lissie has grown too old for her childish methods, but Nan and William have both had much success with her and their lessons, despite their reluctance to leave for lessons every time we go.
And what are your plans for your oldest daughter, Kirsten? I've often wondered what she plans to do with her life or what your aims for her will be. All the girls her age seem to have goals or have settled into something. Lissie has her training for court to occupy her, as well as her dancing students. Rebecca and Samantha Parkington are both teachers and members of the town council. Both the Montoya girls have full-time jobs. Lisa is the town's treasurer, Angelica and Alex own restaurants. As far as I know, Kirsten does not have a job nor much of a vocation. What shall you do about this?
Currently we are hosting my sister's children, Annabelle and Rufus, at our home for a few months for a visit. They are quite different from my own children, I must say!
