Tomorrow is a national holiday here in Italy, and I've decided to use the chance to go skiing with Filippo. It will be me and him alone, for three days. Filippo is six years old, but he is a good boy and I am sure he will give me no worry. His only concern was that he is going to lose one day at school! I had to convince him that it was ok, and since this afternoon I had had a colloquium with his teachers - this was a prearranged meeting with the parents, to let them know how the kids were doing - I was able to carry him the word of his teacher who said he could go skiing provided he did his homework.
Filippo did his homework this evening, two days in advance... So we are all set up to leave tomorrow.
By the way, the teacher told Mariarosa and I that he is a wonderful boy, that he behaves well, that he is very tidy with his work at school, and that she is proud of him. We were very happy when we left her.
I'll be back on Sunday.
