Back to school / up date: Rain today September5 !

La rentrée scolaire

English version below the picture

Aujourd’hui 1er Septembre  c’est la rentrée des classes en France.. Nous avons  retrouvé une photo de cette rentrée datant de 1971 . Quatre de nos enfants étaient prêts pour le premier jour de classe ( cf la légende de la photo ) . Le cinquième ( Isabelle ) avait seulement 3 semaines et le sixième ( jean- Baptiste n’ était pas né ).

Today September 1st is back to school, in France. We found a photo of this return coming  from 1971. Four of our children were ready for the first day of school (see photo caption). The fifth (Isabelle) was only 3 weeks old and the sixth (Jean-Baptiste was not born).

Restant sur le même sujet nous nous sommes souvenus que nous avions une photo des enfants de Carole prise en 1994 . Il ‘ agit d’une nouvelle génération qui prend le chemin de l‘école .
C’était la même image pour les autres petits-enfants

La rentrées scolaire donne toujours un peu d’anxiété pour élèves et professeur . C’est quelque chose de nouveau ou de renouveau qu’il faut affronter, une nouvelle année d’un travail toujours renouvelé .Personnellement j’ ai vécu 58 rentrées des classes depuis l’âge de trois ans . Je fus un élève , puis un étudiant , ensuite un professeur et enfin a inspecteur  en sciences . Quatre de nos six enfants ont un mértier  un métier d’enseignant. C’est dire que le notion de rentrée scolaire est toujours bien présente dans la vie de la famille .  

Avez-vous ausi éprouvé ce sentiment particulier de la rentrée des classes ?

Staying on the same subject we remembered that we had a photo of Carole’s children taken in 1994. It’s about a new generation that goes to school.(see above ). It was the same image for the other grandchildren .

Back to school always gives a little anxiety for students and teachers. It is something new or renewal that must be faced, a new year of always renewed work. Personally I have experienced 58 back to school since the age of three. I was a pupil, then a student, then a teacher and finally a science inspector. Four of our six children have a job as a teacher. This means that the concept of back to school is always very present in the life of the family.

Have you also experienced this particular feeling of back to school?

    We just saw a news headline that this summer was the hottest for Europe in all recorded history. Definitely disturbing times! Pray for rain to continue . . .

    I love those photos of your children and grandchildren! September seems to have brought a new beginning to children and to the plants! I’m glad you danced in the rain! I hope there will be more rain to replenish the parched earth.

    Both Dan and I have experienced many back to school days because we have not only attended school but we have worked in the schools, Dan as a teacher and me as both a teacher and a nurse. This is the first year there has been no back to school for me, and I found that to be hard.

    We only have one grandchild in secondary school now. We have 2 in college, but one will finish at the end of this year. Our granddaughter has been out of college for 2 years now. School is a very special time for students, parents, teachers, and all school staff!
