Grace Masters the Tea Ceremony

We usually get together with the Muraguchis about once a week. Sometimes Mrs. Muraguchi is away for the first half of our visit, either for dancing or tea ceremony lessons, and when she arrives home she is still overflowing with the artistic spirit. That's how Grace landed this tea ceremony lesson back in April (she was a year and nine months old at the time).
