I think that’s what the French Club kids were saying. We were all focused at that point on trying the bûche de Noël that AC, Sam and I made yesterday. Today Sam and I added marizpan champignons and other tree fungi to it (cake pictured bottom right). It was tasty! French Club goes on a […]

How is it December already? Only one more French Class till we break for the holidays and my surgery.
French Club played card games today.
Skit in French Club today. Sam was playing the part of a dragon who helps a student pick up pencils, erasers (“gomme”) and books that have fallen out of his backpack. She looks dragon-like, doesn’t she?
We’ve been whittling down our galette des rois all week and no sign of the fève that would confer kingship. (I used a bean as the fève and have been afraid all week that one of us had inadvertently swallowed it). But today, to our amazement, Sam and I each got a piece of the […]
Making paper bûches de Noël… I know, they should be edible and chocolate, but after all the cookie baking, I just didn’t have it in me.
Today in French Club we took turns playing a hypnotist who can make people believe crazy things about themselves. Tu t’appelles Alex… tu as 3 ans… tu as 21 frères… French club parents: my apologies if your child wakes up believing that he or she is a dog, a dolphin, or has 21 brothers.
French Club kids unleash their energy on the library.
French Club is split into two groups this year– Les Grands et Les Petits. With Les Grands we are working with a textbook program called Alex et Zoé. The kids recently completed the first unit and today they presented a skit to Les Petits. I don’t think Les Petits were too impressed, but I was […]
What French club was asking after I changed everyone’s names and gave them chapeaux to wear. (Sam is wearing a beret that I bought at Galeries Lafayette in 1987 on my first trip to Paris.)
Looks like we were about to have a board room meeting, but no, it’s a new year for French Club, now meeting weekly at the downtown library. It’s looks so calm here, doesn’t it? I was trop occupée to take any pictures of the ensuing mayhem.
Actually I don’t think it rained all that much here (freezing or regular) but still, it was a good day to stay indoors with a still sick child.
We made mini tartes au sucre today in French Club as part of our Quebec studies. This was not an entirely traditional recipe, as we substituted graham cracker crusts for the more usual pâte brisée. They were quite tasty, though. Here’s a bonus shot of the kids feasting:
A brief moment of quiet while the kids in French Club draw self-portraits.
Sort of. As soon as the rain turned to snow, the French Club kids ran outside to taste it.
Well, pretending qu’il fait froid in French club today.
The kids made it (with help!) and it was délicieuse.
See what I mean? Kids are blurry.
