Top of the class

Earlier this week Mrs H & I had an appointment with the Juniorette’s school teacher/head mistress to discuss how she is doing at school. In our part of Hessen children receive their first school report in the summer term of their second year. The Juniorette so wants to have an official report, but she will have to wait a few more months yet.

Personally I believe the chat could not have gone better. The teacher said that she had nothing negative to report about our daughter. In fact she said that at the moment the Juniorette is the top student in the class. Apparently she even has her temper under control. She does well at maths, reading and dictation and most importantly of all has a desire to learn. We were very happy with the feedback and were extremely pleased with the progress that she has made.

The Juniorette was obviously very curious to what was said about her in our meeting. So we basically told her what was said, but we omitted the fact that she is top of her class, instead we told her that she is in the top group of her class, as we do not want success to go to her head. We told her how happy and proud we were of her, and of her achievements so far.

Also this week my Dad had a Stent Procedure performed in hospital in the UK. All went well and he is back home recoving.

Watch out Angela Merkel!

I have never doubted Juniorette's ability to succeed. She is so interested in everything and I think truly wants to succeed! You are very lucky, Haddock. Very lucky, indeed!

Germany? An Englishman in Germany. It is interesting. I read a couple of your posts and posts on bigbikerbobs place. Anyway. Thought I would pop in and say hi. Interesting you drinking fuchsia juice. I had a pot full of it here last summer and the hummingbirds wouldn't touch it for some reason.

Think I got a picture of it on my site if you are interested. http://www.oldmanlincoln.com/ then click on photography and then click on digital flowers.

An interesting post.

So nice, that Juniorette is doing and obviously also feeling so well in school, as we also know the opposite of it, but fortunately boy blue is doing well now, too, and feeling better in school. They spend a lot of time there, and there is still so much to improve in many of the not-private-schools in Germany! Best wishes for your father!

Juniorette sounds like she has the qualities I wish I had seen in more of the german praktikanter applicants I had interviewed ... hope she keeps the fire stoked, as it will serve her well.

Great wisdom in your explanation of the conference... this might be where Juniorette is getting her smarts!

(As for the temper, I used to be a teacher, and parents were always amazed when I said how wonderful their kids were... "You mean MY Joey?" they would say. Apparently, home brings out a different side! Probably just shows that your daughter feels safe with you.)
