Becoming 9

Week three at school and I think I am One Of The Kids now. My classmates seem happy to see me arrive each morning and many skip (yes, skip) toward me and offer an enthusiastic bonjour. A few are eager to tell me their news or show me things. One morning a group of kids were huddled around a window and called for me to come over and take a look with them. Of course I didn't know what to expect and I must admit I felt a little anxious over what I was about to see. Maybe a dead critter? Turns out two insects were, shall I say, ''having an intimate moment''. The kids were fascinated by this while I was relieved it wasn't a dead thing. But what to say? And, remember, say it in French! I stood there with the kids, huddled in a circle with them, and realized that they had taken me into their fold. My response didn't really matter. I am becoming 9 again and it is fun-tastic!

Where was your teacher during this little exchange? (That's the principal in me.)
Oh to be nine again....I don't even remember anything from that age. So glad you get to experience it all again!

Teachers were in class - see what you all miss 'preparing' for the day? Ha!

Quite an experience! Learning a language, while learning to be a child again......few have that opportunity.

What fun. How'd you convince the school to let you do that? I bet you learn a ton! I just finished listening to "What French Women Know" by Debra Olivier and it includes a section on how the French are comfortable with nudity and reproduction, animals mating, etc.. So it's probably best if you didn't say anything.

Hi learning a new language with kids in their own country, they are probably the best teachers you could have found, and the feeling of beeing 9 again with them,
You are very lucky

Best Regards Sam
