We’re settling into winter at the cottage….which means there’s not much to report. Craig is still fighting with the electrical system on the boat….hopefully, he’ll win. I’m working on our upcoming trip to Egypt…..making sure everything is booked correctly. Sooooo…..today it’s time for more musings. This time…..school children.
Watching French school children is a joy. They often go on field trips, so we’ve seen them here and there on our travels. What strikes us each and every time is how well behaved they are. If there’s hyperactivity or ADD here, they sure know how to control it.
Just like the “Madeline” books, French schoolchildren walk two-by-two, hand-in-hand. There’s no loitering, no teasing, no kicking, no crying…..just well-behaved children following their teacher. What do they know here that we don’t know at home?
