Bravo Lily!

Today was report card day. I had no idea we would get them so early but at lunchtime Lily brought home a little folder with lists of all the competencies required in the three sections of the maternelle. Of course, only the moyenne section was completed for her. We were thrilled to see lots of green boxes checked showing that she could do all the things they want kids who are finishing the moyenne year to be able to do. The teacher wrote that she had adapted really well to the school system. And there was a letter from the Directrice for us to sign confirming that she should advance to the grande section at the rentrée in September. All very normal things, I know. But we were all very proud that she'd done so well in her first year of school here, especially when you consider that this time last year she could barely speak any french.

I had to have a little giggle at the physical activity section. There was a box to be checked for "daring to take risks." It was checked like all the others. She certainly has changed from the toddler who was so cautious she would not even crawl under the dining table!

I'm very belated here with my wishes, but I just wanted to pipe in with a YAY for Lily too! Must be such a good feeling to know she has adapted so well to school here in France, and so quickly!
