An Eliana first: She made orange juice appear like magic.

Eliana’s interests often follow Ethan’s, which currently center on magic. It’s fun for a father, since I get to play amateur magician and see if I can improve my slight of hand more quickly than the kids can hone their skills of observation.

I emphasize that the most important trait of a magician is the diligence to practice, practice, practice. Eliana is off to an early start. Watch carefully… Where did that orange juice come from?
