Bonne anniversaire Jacques!

Lily's favourite game for a long time now has been to play school. She has been known to get up at 7am on a weekend and want to start straight away - rather exhausting! Fortunately, Jasper is a keen participant and will eagerly do his travaille, have a sieste, and all else that school entails. But somewhere along the line he got a new name and whenever they play school he is known as Jacques.

And apparently it was his birthday the other day, judging from what Lily wrote on the blackboard...

I am very pleased to hear that Jacques has a different birthday to Jasper's otherwise Jasper would be facing a bit of an identity crisis.
It's great that she enjoys school so much, I don't ever remember you being quite that enthusiastic about it.

I have heard this story a great deal from the parents of children who grow up to be teachers.

Hello People!
Fantastic news with all the leaps jasper has taken. Love the restaurant photos and you look great at the pig festival. Must be getting pretty cold your side of the planet. 35 here and plenty of tropical storms. Miss you all

My girls are very into playing school. Sophie has the timetable and curriculum all sorted out. But because they all want to be teachers we don't have any actual students - they are all imaginary ones. Roger can't understand how the girls can teach a class of imaginary children for hours, but they have great fun. And all the teaching is done in French, of course.

I love Lily's writing on the blackboard.
Caro.
