Great Wall of French

My oldest nieces made me very proud this last week.  My oldest niece, Isabella, is a freshman in high school.  The same high school that I went to (and my wife, and both my brothers, and my sister, and my sister-in-law…we really like the school ;)

The band at Lincoln College Preparatory Academy (LCPA) is, to be straight to the point, awesome.  A couple years ago they played at Carnegie Hall in New York City.  This year they are playing in China.  Not only in China…but ON the Great Wall.  How crazy is that?  Isabella plays the french horn and it is pretty cool what she gets to do.  Below you can see a quick shot that I grabbed of her as she was getting ready to leave for the airport.

Isabella’s little sister, Sidney, is 7 years old and goes to a French immersion school.  I went over to my parents house last week and they were watching Sidney after she got home from school.  I checked over her homework that she had due and she then did some extra work for bonus points.  She had to write 5 sentences in French.  I found it pretty amazing that she could write these sentences off the top of her head.  It seems like yesterday that she was writing her name with a backward E ;)

After she wrote the sentences, I had her tell me what they meant.  One of the sentences was ‘Mon oncle et a la maison’.  She said this translated to ‘my uncle is in the house’…makes my heart melt.  I am so proud of the two girls!

Thanks P for doing what you do. I like being able to stay connected through your blog. I unfortunately suck at life and am not up on doing the same on my end.

I could really see the picture of Sydney’s French and how you edited it, framed and on the wall.
