So how awesome is it that Russia tipped a game-winning point over the net in her first volleyball match?  Granted our team was handily in the lead, but still.  Even more awesome was her fist-pumping bounce to the back of the court…and then her sprint to the top of the bleachers to give me a big hug.  This girl keeps nothing inside.

Meanwhile, Canada is doing her social magic in the bleachers with the newest exchange student to our school, Norway, who is terribly homesick and hasn’t even unpacked her bags yet, despite living with a super host family.  By the end of the match, they were giggling and eating lollipops they’d finagled from my classroom like old friends.

And Renaissance Man and I?  Well, we took photos, cheered, and generally tried to not be too uncool. (This last task could be a full-time job.)
