|G&G with the "bonjour" bear outside the French classroom|
Definitely not practical, non? But I can still take them there on special occasions, like last week's French International Night:
In a crowded, stage-less cafeteria, Griff and Gwyn watched kids their ages sing songs they know and act out a story they've heard many times, all in French. So valuable!
|The cast of Cendrillon takes a bow|
|And then some college students acted out Le petit chaperon rouge, which is Gwyn's most favorite fairy tale ever. (At least this week.)|
The kids played Le jeu de l'oie on a huge gameboard marked out in masking tape on the floor,
built castles out of cardboard,
and indulged in French cheese, croissants, and crêpes au Nutella et à la confiture.
|(I indulged too, naturally!)|
|We could probably spread Nutella on a dirty sock full of Brussels sprouts and my children would eat it up.|
|Unsurprisingly, very similar to what I see in Griffin's classroom--but somehow so much cuter in French!|
