Blame It On Paris. I sent an email to our Computer Whisperer here at school and told him I want to start a class blog. We've met and planned. I am still excited about it. The enthusiasm hasn't waned. I opened up the naming of the blog to the 7th graders. (I chose them because I will teach them again next year and we can track our progress.) A brainstorming session ensued in one class and French Fish was thrown out. Well, the more I thought about it the more I liked it. Then an art contest came about. Above is one of the entries. We need a mascot, after all, don't we? Here are a few more--
Berets and baguettes appear to be de rigeur for our little fishes, nos petits poissons.
Anyway, all the talk of fish, made me think about a song that I heard while living in France. Chef Érick loves Boby Lapointe and his funny songs. We even drove to his hometown, Pézenas, in southern France. Boby was a brilliant man who knew how to use words and his songs are very funny. Here is La maman des poissons (the fish mommy)-- Could this be me now???
Bon appétit, la maman des poissons!
