Anyway, look who showed up for my first period French class this morning--
And they came bearing gifts-- beautiful little handmade chocolats.
Ok, ok, ok. Sébastien and Jacquy were not actually in my classroom in the flesh, so to speak. One of my darling 6th grade girls brought in a brochure from The French Pastry School and the box of chocolates. Her stepdad is a VIP and he did get to go to the opening night soirée held at American Tobacco after the film. She just plopped those goodies down on my desk first thing. I am quite sure she knew I would be happy with her gifts, she probably didn't have any idea just how thrilled I would be!
Bon appétit, la petite Marie et merci!
P.S. One young man in my French 8 class has caught on to the chocolate thing... Yesterday, he brought in a pan of Chocolate Stuff to share with his classmates. It just so happened that the only other boy in his class was absent, so he ended up serving it to seven very happy young ladies. And Chocolate Stuff is best eaten with a spoon, making the experience even more enjoyable. There was not one crumb remaining in that pan, let me tell you. A nice way to end the day! Bravo, M. Alejandro Chèvre! (Can you believe that I actually forgot to take a photo??)
