Creative Writing

My eldest daughter Elllie, is now 6, and went for a school trip to the zoo yesterday.  Her homework was to write a sentence about her day and here it is.

Translation: Aujourd’hui nous sommes allée au zoo. Nous a(vons) pique-niqués et avons vu des animaux.

It is the first time she has had to write anything, for homework, that wasn’t copying, and it really made me smile.  French is her first language, and while we are a bilingual family, English is my first language and I still find writing French hard to do, so it is comforting to know that it isn’t easy for anyone, at first.  She is very proud to be sharing
