Arrival at school:  10 minutes late  Clock still at 0 but made progress in the amount of 7 minutes.

Learned a couple of things today.

1.  I think Rip is using the time he spends getting dressed in the car as time to connect with me.  He totally opens up and talks about school and other stuff.

2.  Rip was under the impression (until just about half an hour ago) that he just needed to go 5 days without TV.  He hadn’t made the connection between getting to school on time and earning the privilege of TV/Computer/Video Games.  And when I explained it to him again…he was not very pleased.

Will see how things go tomorrow morning that he is more clear on how the system is working.  My guesstimate on how long it will be before the TV comes back on is:  4 weeks.
