Grade 2!

Yesterday Ms M started grade 2. I just can’t believe it. She is growing so fast and I can see the tween years are going to come way too fast.

Here she is, my beautiful girl, ready to go yesterday morning:

Check there the posts from the previous years.

The difference this year is that her little brother wanted to go to school too and be in the pic as well. So here they are together!

She seems to love her new teacher and I liked that there were no mistakes in her first letter to the parents 🙂

On the news front:

  • Maybe you’ve seen from the pics from the previous post, we have been busy: my nephew and A’s niece came for 3 weeks in July. We did something almost everyday, museum, pool, water park, walk in the forest, play dates…the kids enjoyed each others and it wasn’t that complicated to manage all these pirates. In fact it went very well and we’d love to have them back again.
  • We have had a great summer weather, enough rain not to worry about watering the yard and enough sun and heat to enjoy pools and water parks and cold drinks and evening bike rides at the sunset. The backyard has given us a lot of lettuces and now we are enjoying red peppers, eggplants and tomatoes…lots of tomatoes!
  • Ms M went 2 weeks in camp including a Chinese one and it was really great! There was a show done by the kids at the end of the week. The Korean classes also participated. It was really interesting and the kids in their costumes were beautiful. I wished I could have taken pics but with my 3 years old wanting to participate it was impossible. Anyway I hope Ms M will go back next year for at least 2 weeks because she seems to get a lot from it. And she will see again some of the friends at Chinese school on Saturdays. If you want to learn the song we are singing since she did it at the show check it here: It is about the white dragon horse from the Journey to the West which is based on Chinese mythology.
  • We went to Toronto for a weekend and were able to see a lot of our friends and introduce Mr E. It was great. We also went to Montréal and saw more friends and my cousin that I had not seen for more than 10 years!! She is coming in a few weeks over here too. A’s parents are planning to come in November to meet with E and my parents and my little sister will spend Christmas with us here before I finish my parental leave. We are very happy!

I am sick so you won’t get more. That’s it for now. We’ll be back soon in the routine with Piano, Ballet, Swimming lessons etc… so yes, it will be busy like usual.


  1. Bonne rentrée jolie Ms M!!
    Pour nous la rentrée sera pour le 2 septembre !! Isaline n’est pas pressée !!

    Gros bisous à vous 4,


  2. glad you all had such a wonderful summer! M looks just beautiful heading off for another year in school 🙂

  3. Bien chers,
    Grosse paresse ou manque de matériel sous la main pendant tous mes déplacements en France, je n’ose polémiquer… J’ai laissé passer l’anniversaire de E, pas donné de nouvelles de mon petit dragon du Vietnam, et pas pris de vos nouvelles, et pas raconté notre installation en Afrique… Et je n’ai même pas votre adresse e-mail puisque l’ordi où is my entire life vient seulement d’arriver a l’aéroport. Reste a passer la douane, alors patience, surtout pour moi… Finalement, le courrier papier avait bien son intérêt…
    A très bientôt a tous les 4,
    Florence de Luanda
