Today Edy had the delectable treat of a delivery of a large envelope addressed in European handwriting. Inside there were more than two dozen letters, poems, drawings and notes from her former class at Volkschule Am Graben. Edy read with teary-eyed delight each letter, every one written in German. Thanks to Philip's passion and drive, Edy has only improved in her German in these eight months. I'm sure she is thinking of her response to her friends even now, and if I know Phil, he'll insist that she answers her friends in German.
