Mom Update

It has been a busy couple of weeks. School is going well. Mid-semester grades were mailed home, and Federico's conscientious studying has paid off with 4 A's and 2 B+s, all done in his second language! We are very proud of him! He has also made the Varsity soccer team! He will have soccer practice after school Monday-Wednesday, with games on Thursday, and no games on weekends. I can DO that!

Federico has had a friend spend the night, and social events on the weekends. This Friday is the Homecoming Football game, and Saturday is the Homecoming Dance. This year, the dance is girl asks boy. His date asked Federico to the dance in a very clever and creative way. He came home with a large gift bag, stuffed with red, white and green tissue, and pulled out: Italian olive oil, spaghetti, Italian roast coffee, biscotti, and a tiramisu. There was a hand-colored Italian flag with this on the back: "Vuoi venire al ballo con me?" (Will you go to the dance with me?)

Federico also enjoyed his morning at the driving range!

Oh my gosh my breath was just taken away when i read about the clever invite for the Homecoming dance! How cute is that! Truly won me over when i read " Vuoi venire al ballo con me!" Totally cute! Love how he has integrated into this american life. What a year!


Moms everywhere are probably jealous!
Such a handsome boy.
