Welcome back John 🙂
Sometimes it's played with the first eighth note down (slurring the two 16th grace notes with the first eighth) and the next 5 triplets up on an up bow staccato. It's also very common to do as this guy does and play the first 3 triplets separate and the next three triplets up bow staccato to articulate the first beat of each measure. Obviously the grace notes are tied into the first eighth triplet in both cases.
I tried to draw it quickly here with my textedit limited program but at least you can get the idea. Only the first grace notes are shown here but as you know, the grace notes are on the first beat of every measure throughout variation no.1.

Oh... that particular violin sound so beautiful.  It very quickly became so easy to play and make sound wonderful.

The strings are lovely... I can play loud as heck or soft.   It is smooth and not annoying... a true quality sound.

Up bow, down bow, and flying staccato is not that easy. Many great violinist have a problem with this. You can play separate bows just as well if you like.
