Jewish Update

I don't think I've told you all that the Big Kid adores school. He absolutely loves it. Every day he doesn't get to go, he asks me if I could please take him. When we asked him if he wanted to go on the boat the other day, he said he just wanted to go to school. When I explained that it was Saturday, he suggested that I call Ms. Sharon and ask anyway.

I can also tell that he's the class pet, which is no surprise since he is so freaking cute. Both teachers light up when they see him and they both hug him hello and goodbye. Today she squeezed him to her and said, "You are so sweet and so cute I could just take you home with me." They are always telling us how amazed they are with his computer skills and by his intelligence. It makes me so proud.

The other afternoon I told him to say goodbye to his teachers and Ms. Sharon said, "Oh, it's au revoir. In the afternoons we speak as much French as possible." LMAO. Okay. He comes home with all of these worksheets with his shapes in French. This is all wonderful and thrills me, but I don't know a word of French so I guess I'd better at least try to learn as much as he is. Honestly, I think Spanish would come in handy more than Hebrew and French will, but I guess we'll leave that up to Dora.

He came home today with his first art project from his art class. They recreated Icarus by Henry Matisse. No, I'm not kidding you. This shit is frame-able.

So, I'm pretty much in love with The Jews, as is the Big Kid. We're all just thrilled with the whole thing and it makes the tuition check a little easier to write. They do get like 9 million days off though. I think there should be a discount for that, because it seems a little extreme, but whatever. All in all, they're great.

A photo of BK's version of Icarus, please.

I love that kid. I'd adopt him sight unseen. Keep that in mind next time you feel like driving off without him. We'll give him a good home.

I was wondering how the Jews were treating him! Sounds like a kick-ass school!

Maybe we should switch? The Politician is learning Spanish at Catholic School, and I of course took French in high school. I blogged recently about a mistaken-foreign-language incident.....

Ah, so instead of "The Conversion of the Jews", it's a rendition of "The Conversion of the Ashley".

What lovely reading.

Boker Tov Ms. Sharon

That is what dear "Big kid" should say the next time he sees her. Or if he is going tomorrow, shabbat shalom Ms. sharon. Oh yes, that will get him in like flynn.

Je ne parle pas francais JODI! ;-)

Aww..very cute, but now that he is speaking French it won't be long until he learns the "sneer" THEN what are you going to do with him?!?
