Today I really did a whole lot of nothing. If I did do something it was not fun enough for me to remember.

Since today was Penecost, we had the day off from school. I slept in, then got up and around and met up with Rachel and Josh for some coffee. Turns out we didn't get coffee, instead Josh and I got this crazy focaccia ice cream sandwich. They put ice cream in a sweet roll kind of thing, and then heat it up for a bit, so you have a nice hot/cold sandwich. It was really good. After that we met up with Steph and played catch. I had bought a normal sized nerf football so we played with that

Back to school today. My kids were awful as usual, but we actually learned some things today. I had my oldest students today. My tutor came again today to evaluate my kids. Why she doesn't tell me about this I have no idea. She was pulling kids out of my classroom to give them oral evaluations. Then after she was done, she came to me and informed me what I wasn't doing right and what I needed to teach them before the year was out. I rolled my eyes at her, and even though she didn't see me, the kids did. They thought it was hilarious. At least now I know what to teach next week. Yay. After school I walked to the centre of Bouguenais and made a hair appointment. Yep, this hair is getting cut off. I've been so afraid of getting a haircut in France, because I know they are going to mess me up, but I'm sick of this hair now. If it's horrible, it'll always grow out right? When I was back in Nantes I met Rachel for some coffee. I ended up getting a Coca Light. I haven't had coke since Christmas at home, so this was a big deal for me :)

Got up today and went to my babysitting job. Today was nice. Except that my favorite, Rose Mary, was a total brat today. She's usually so good, but she was just giving me attitude all day. It was awful. I told her mom about it later and she blamed herself. She said she doesn't give Rose Mary enough attention because she's a middle child. Ok.... The kids were really upset at lunch because we didn't have the right ingredients for me to make a tarte. Apparently I'm really good at making tartes. We had to have pasta and they just didn't like that. After lunch I hung out with Cosme and we played with Play-Dough all afternoon. It was so cute. I finally got some pictures of them too, so I'll put them up. I don't have one of the oldest though, Raphaelle. I'll get one later. Then the mom came home and was talking about Raphaelle's communion, which I agreed to go to. Apparently that marks the end of the school year. So I think next week will be my last week with these kid. :( Just when I was getting comfortable with them. After I left there I went to a kid's store and got a magnetic map of France with all the different departments and regions. It'll be great to have in my classroom I think. I also got a kid's book that explains the rules to soccer; it was so cute I couldn't pass it up. I'm still trying to find games that I can bring back with me and use at school. There isn't a huge selection, and the games are SO expensive. Plus I'm not sure how much room I'll have in my suitcase. We'll see.
