February 7 was a great day. Philip visited his new school for the first time and met his teachers. For privacy reasons I won't mention the details of the visit but will say it went great. Philip's reaction was this: I LOVE IT. OPEN MINDED TEACHERS. THEY TREAT ME AS BEING SMART.
In the evening we watched the Opening Ceremonies. Philip noted I AM TOUCHED BY THE STORY OF RUSSIA. I will take this as a springboard to teach Philip (and myself) some Russian history this week. As I marveled over the beauty of the opening ceremony, I realized Philip had fallen asleep. It was a good day, worthy of a gold medal in my book.
