Remarkable, Indeed

Today is my first day back teaching in the voice studio. Currently, I'm doing no teaching whatsoever, because evidently lessons aren't starting until NEXT week; a tiny detail nobody told me. Not to worry, though, because I have an actual class to teach in an hour, so the trip was not wasted.

In the meantime, I'm filing mountains of music. It's a job long overdue, so I'm happy to have quality time with my file cabinet. In the process of emptying out several plastic crates of music, I ran across an old journal I bought. It seems TinyTuna must have claimed ownership immediately, because it is filled with her work. Based on the handwriting, I'd judge this book is approximately 5-6 years old, meaning TinyTuna would have been in Kindergarten.

I turned to a page which appears to be the beginning of a TinyTuna story. It reads:
Once upon a time there lived a princess . She lived in a remarkable castle.
It wasn't unusual for TinyTuna to drag out scary vocabularly like this all the time and make me feel both a little proud and a little worried. But after looking at the actual page:
once uPoN a time ther Lived A PrincSS She LiVed I A remarkabel casell.
I thought "Phew! She's still six!"
