Yesterday we went for a walk through the woods in Brittany... it was a beautiful day, so I took some pictures.

Here in France, our kids are often tasked with memorizing poetry. They're given a few lines to memorize one night, and a few more lines the next, until gradually over time they are able to learn an entire French poem. They then recite it in front of the class.

Although I don't find that this practice is normally undertaken in the United States or Canada, I do think that it has its benefits! I've outlined a few of them in a post. Why not check it out, and then have your own children or students learn to memorize a poem for themselves?

For those of us with young kids...

Groundhog Day is coming up... on February 2nd, a crowd will gather in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania to watch the groundhog emerge from his burrow. Legend has it that if he sees his shadow and runs back into his burrow, that will mean six more long weeks of winter.

In celebration of the day, here are some free Groundhog Day math worksheets for first and second graders.

this post is a few weeks, old, because I neglected to post it here! But... never late than better?

at any rate, here are a few pictures from some of our adventures in France and England during the past couple of months.

Some pictures of the snow here in Normandy.  It has since melted, but it was a beautiful sight!  I hope to see more of it during February.

In England, today is Shrove Tuesday (or Pancake Tuesday). On this day people celebrate a tradition of eating pancakes before the start of Lent. Though we live in France, this afternoon we got together with some English friends who live in the area and celebrated the day with pancake races. Kids (and adults!) had to race from the starting line to the finish line while repeatedly flipping a pancake up into the air with a frying pan. If you dropped your pancake you had to pick it up and keep going. Afterward there were pancakes to eat with powdered sugar and lemon, as well as buttered scones and tea. In all it was a very British afternoon.

Snow has arrived in Normandy - we got our first snowfall of the season on January 30th, which was a light dusting, but during the night last night we got several inches of the stuff. It was a crusty snow that wasn't as easy to play in, but the kids found a way! Callum even made a "snowhenge" with crusts of snow.

And in other news - it's cold out there!
