My First Day of French School

Today I started classes with my French Tutor. It was very difficult, but I learned a lot too. The teacher, Suzanne, is a very friendly, patient lady. We bought a voice recorder, so I was able to record my class. I think I'll have to listen to it a hundred times to learn everything I was taught today. She gave me lots of homework to study and things to memorize. It's a little mind boggling right now, but I'm so glad to be on my way to learn French! Beth took a picture of me with her camera on my way to school. Patrick and the children were so sweet and waved from the window as I drove away. When I got back the kids were on the porch waiting for me and there was this sign on the door. While I was gone Patrick did some studying himself, then made flashcards for the kids to learn their French as well. He also had a hot lunch, beautifully set table, and fresh flowers waiting for me. My family is so sweet! Next Friday is my Oral Test. We'll see how I do!
