Back to Class

November 3, 2014

We’ve wrapped our final moments of break and today we began classes again.  It is nice to get back into the routine of language learning and tuck more French into the space in our brains!  The kids were SOOOO excited to go back to school – they love it!  Even Axel was excited to see his friends in the nursery class.

Now that we’ve passed the first six weeks and the break, the new rule is that only French is to be spoken during school hours.  The school even requests that you speak French during the lunch break.  Matthew and I have already been trying, but today we actually held fast and only spoke French, except what we were simply unable to say (or to clarify what we were attempting) during lunch.  The kids understand French very well at this point, so it really wasn’t a big deal to them.  And Matthew and I were able to talk about our classes from the morning and what we were learning in the afternoon.

It was quite humorous, though, to call Levi from his room “á table!” and get an equally loud “nooonnnnnnn!” back.  (Not that we let him get away with saying no, even if it was in perfectly accented French, but it was still funny.)

After school, Amelia and I walked to the grocery store and back and had a lovely mother/daughter time.  She’s been extra THREE lately, so it was nice to have a pleasant time, if only for a little bit.

So, the reality is that I don’t want to do dishes or homework…alors, je dois.
