Good work!
In case you need some good news today, I am happy to report that these two really nice women named Annie and Bruna who came to the picnic with Jennifer and Wisdom, Tina and Peace, delivered on their promise to go grocery shopping and get both families two weeks' worth of baby food and diapers. Jennifer had a week full of doctor's appointments first for herself and then for Wisdom who ran a high fever, so she was very happy to have the supplies delivered to her. Peace was also all out of food; and, as you can see from the picture, she was very happy to get some teething biscuits.

Speaking of good work, we are very proud of T and all the hard work she has put in at school. Her class' grades were posted on the bulletin board at her high school today. Just part of the Italian nightmare that is liceo/high school. Ever heard of privacy, people? Anyway, her grades showed that she is fourth in her class at one of the most difficult high schools on the planet; and she accomplished all that and learned Greek and Latin in a second language. The pressure never lets up at this school. I can't imagine what it must be like for her to be interrogated in front of the class, knowing that it would be so much easier in English. Nevertheless, she has risen to every challenge.
