GIRL flies to Paris

Last week, GIRL and her preschool class flew to France. Each was allowed one carry-on. A large painted cardboard box served as the cockpit. All passengers made their own passports and had to pass through security at LAX. Assignments were made prior to the flight, and GIRL was ticket taker. GIRL later confessed that she and a male classmate wanted to be Security so they could ask if anyone was carrying weapons.

Once airborne, passengers were served refreshments and watched an in-flight movie. They landed in time to have snack in Paris. Bon!

Over the last week they have tasted Brie, goat cheese, chocolate croissants, and meringues -while sipping on pink lemonade. Various French phrases can be heard bandied about the Motherscribe household....Bonjour Mes Amis, Au Revoir, and Allez vous to name a few.

Projects have included a replica of Notre Dame with sugar cubes and an ice cream cone, as well as a Popsicle bridge over the Seine. Yesterday they studied Monet's art while at Le Louvre. GIRL painted a still life of a bowl of fruit, and a vase of flowers.

Toujours...alors, they must fly home tomorrow. Paris in the spring. Nothing like it...
