School Lunch Menu
We are plodding on with the school routine. While the kids are settled, I wouldn't say they are content. They still miss/ prefer school and tots corner back in NZ. The language is and will remain the biggest barrier for them for some time.
James slept in this morning, I had to go get him up. He ask me "is it a school day today dad?"; "I miss my friends from Tots and Fran too".
The good thing is that they are not really complaining (much) and we are putting lots of focus on the many positives. Like the school lunch which they generally enjoy and things like jet planes breaking the sound barrier (which seems to happen quite a lot).
You might be interested to know that school lunch costs €1.50 per child per day, which is very reasonable. I assume it is state subsidised but I must ask.
I find it amusing that in NZ we spend so much time worrying about the impact that soft-drink vending machines and the tuck-shop menu has on childhood obesity. Whereas here there are no vending machines and no tuck-shop, just a well balanced 3-course meal which promotes healthy eating. I just love the way the French do things!
The boys are going on a school trip this Friday to an aquarium, I wonder what the food for the pique-nique will be.
