Winter has arrived!

Bonjour tout le monde!

I figured I would start putting little French phrases out there, it is a learning opportunity!

The month of December so far has been a long one, but still fun and filled with school work and snow!
We got a snow storm here a few weeks ago, I am sure some of you have seen it on the news.
It snowed for two days and so many roads were blocked and a lot of transportation systems were cancelled.

Lucky for us high schoolers, the bus system was stopped for the Wednesday and there were at most six people in class.  Since I live in Bonneville, the same town as the high school, I had to go to school. It was nice though because in one class there were three of us and in the other we were six.  I had only two classes that day!

A week later all of the snow was gone and everyone was happy. Unfortunately it snowed again on Friday, we only got a couple of inches though and not too much was blocked.

Finally it is vacation time!
Friday was a day full of school... but lucky for us that we got to eat in just about every class.  In the afternoon, there were college students, who were in 1ere ES at the high school, who came to talk to us about opportunities for university and options that are available to us with the ES Bac.

I found it all very interesting, but I was not concerned because since I am coming back to the US for my senior year, I am not going to finish the Bac or go to University in France.

Tonight we had our Concert de Noël for the Harmonie and it went very well.  We all looked beautiful in our "costumes" and we played very well.

Tomorrow we leave for Barcelona and then we head off to Pamier, near Toulouse for Christmas and then up to Nancy in the North for the New Year!  We are really going to be all over the place for Christmas, with not a lot of downtime, so look out for another post after the New Year!

Happy Holidays everyone and have a Happy New Year!
