Our granddaughterManon en Juillet dernier : 18 ans . A son côté son frère Antoine . Elle tient son petit-cousin Elliot ( 1 an )        Notre petite-fille Manon last July , 18 years old . At her side her brother Antoine . She is holding her second cousin Elliot ( one year old )

Notre petite-fille Manon que beaucoup d’entre vous connaissent a terminé en juin ses études au lycée avec un très haut niveau. En septembre, elle a entamé de longues études en médecine à l’Université d’Amiens. Vous savez que nous habitons à Amiens et nous sommes heureux d’avoir Manon avec nous. En plus , la faculté est non loin de chez nous (20 minutes à pied).

Son plaisir est de revenir chez nous en traversant le jardin potager Voyez sur la photo  à quel point ses pas sont énergiques. Après 4 heures de chimie et de biologie de 8h à midi, elle a gardé toute son énergie!

Our granddaughter Manon  that many of you know, ended in June her studies  in Highschool  with a very high level . On this September she  started long studies in medicine at the Amiens University .  You know we live in Amiens  so  we are happy to have Manon with us . More : she has not to go  far from our home ( 20 minutes to walk ).

Her pleasure is to come back at our home in crossing the veggie garden . Look a the  picture how energetic  her steps are  .  After 4 hours of chemistry and biology , she kept all of her energy !

De cette façon, après le  potager, elle doit traverser la pelouse en profitant des buissons et des bosquets. Enfin, elle atteint l’arrière de la maison.

Elle arrive par l’ arrière de la maison . She reaches the back of the house .

By this way after the veggie garden she has to cross the lawn enjoying bushes and little groves. At last she reaches the back of the house .

Un bon repas est pris rapidement et après avoir aidé Janine à mettre les assiettes dans le lave-vaisselle, elle va immédiatement travailler dans sa chambre. Je suis convaincue qu’elle obtiendra le concours à la fin de l’année scolaire pour passer vers la deuxième année des études de médecine. . Il est encourageant de voir tant de volonté et d’organisation. Elle réussira.

A good meal   is taken quickly  and after helping  Janine to put the plates in the the diswasher she goes immediatelty in her room to work . I am convinced she will get the contest at the end on the sholar year to pass in second year of medicine studies . . It is encouraging to see so much will and organization. She will succeed .

    It must be nice to have a granddaughter around the house. She is very fortunate to be able to live with you and Janine, with the university a stone’s throw away. I’m sure with hard work and the will to succeed, she will do very well in her studies!

  16. Susan Joos says:

    I can’t believe she has finished High School already, let alone that she is studying medicine! How wonderful for you all that she can stay with you and attend school as well. That is such a happy circumstance! You will feel her energy, too – love it so much!

  21. Rachel says:

    Proud grandparents! She will do well!
    Things have not been easy here in Michigan, but we go on after the loss of my youngest sister, Lynda. She was 54.
    Now we move on into fall and the changing of the leaves. My little garden is almost done.

  22. Gayle Smith says:

    She is beautiful as well as smart! How nice you and Janine can help her while she’s at college! Now she can study and not have to worry about added expenses!

  25. How nice 🙂 I remember when my nephew stayed with my parents – it was helpful for both sides 🙂
    Good luck to Manon and enjoy her company!! ❤

  26. weggieboy says:

    How fortunate you and Janine get to share your home with your granddaughter while she studies to be a doctor!

  27. Anne-Marie says:

    Merveilleux pour Manon et pour vous !
    Nos enfants ont aussi profité de tels échanges et ce fut une bénédictions pour tous!

  28. Karen J Fidler says:

    Manon is all grown up! She is lovely! I remember in the past that she was always a dedicated student; she is rewarded for that now. I wish her all the luck with her studies and that you and Janine enjoy her while she stays and studies with you. Love, Karen

  29. neilc693 says:

    A “pre-med” student! They all work very hard. It must be a delight to have her with you.
    I don’t know how it works in France, but here medicine is not an undergraduate specialty. One first earns what I guess corresponds to a licence in a traditional discipline, and then applies to medical school.

    • Ici en France on rentre à la faculté de médecine sur dossier mais il y a un concours à la fin de la première année. Ceux qui réusssissent ce concours continuent à la faculté jusqu’à le thèse de doctorat en médecine ou mieux l’ agrégation de médecine ( pour être professeur de médecine )

      • neilc693 says:

        I think medical training is or was like that in the UK too. I’m very impressed by the agrégation system. In mathematics, the “agrég” level of qualification is very high compared to what high school/community college instructors here often need. Manon will do very well, surely, no matter what path she takes.

      • Merci Neil .je suis moi -même agrégé des sciences de la vie et de la terre , et J ‘ ai une petite-fille de 31 ans qui est agrégée de physique. J’ ai toute confiance en la réussite de Manon.
        Toutes mes amitiés

    Mornin Glorie!!! This makes me happy for Manon and for you and Janine, she is starting a new and exciting time! I remember when my twins started college, they were very uncertain about where they would live and although things worked out fine for them, your Manon doesn’t have that one worry. She will be a Great Doctor, I have no doubt!!!! She is also very lovely as is Antoine and Elliot, well the boys are handsome like their Grandfather! ILYM

  31. Cath aka Singapore Girl says:

    That’s really excellent! I’m full of admiration! I’m very happy for her, that she doesn’t have to travel far for her studies and she’ll be living in such a peaceful environment.

  32. bernard 25 says:

    —Bonjour—mon Amie—–Ami MICHEL que ta petite fille réussisse bien dans sa vie professionnelle
