Sunday report

Yesterday we had our interview for Pierre's school. Saying like that it seems we are going to enroll him in an expensive private school Pierre spent one day over there last week and loved it! He met one of his friend (who were at Pierre's school last year) who welcomed him. This school is a public school but they have a different approach of teaching. They have only 22 students per classroom but they only accept 44 new students every year... Last year, they had 88 applications (I think the number is higher this year.) so Pierre's chance of being accepted are very very slim (especially because they choose a little bit of good students, a lot of average and a few kids who have difficulties - like Pierre ...)


The interview went well but it's always hard for me to have to talk about Pierre's leukomia ... I often get that teary eyes I can't help even though I make a lot of effort to control them ... The teacher we met told us Pierre could be doing great in that school but he doesn't take the decision. A board will meet and we'll get the answer in may. He also told us to think of another school. I know that but honestly it's hard to find a school that will deal properly with Pierre's difficulties ...




On the stitching part, I am happily building a bird house !!! Lanarte charts are so easy on eyes and you always have the feeling to move on so fast. But you should see the fabric: it's huge !!!!!!!!!!! I have a little blanket on me The design is supposed to be 43 x 37 cm ( 17"x14 1/2")

Thanks for dropping by. Eversince I moved to the new office...my visitors rate have gone to level zero. Can't blame them as I hardly post nor I get time to read alot of blogs. Not even 5 in a day. There goes my virtual life. :-)
