Grace had a real challenge ahead of her when we moved to Haiti – there was no first grade offered at the Missionary School! Thankfully, prior to moving, she tested well enough to be accepted into second grade. It was challenging for her at first, but she is doing very well. She has seven girls and one boy in her class! She loves her teacher, Mrs. Leger! She rides to and from school in a gator with three neighbors, Chloe, Gabby and Faith (Chloe and Gabby’s mom, Mandy, and me in front).
Grace is finished with school each day at 12:30 to come home in time for lunch. She loves cursive writing, math, Bible time, and especially loves her newest subject, the French language. She has a French teacher who comes into her classroom two times a week. She shares her excitement in learning words, phrases, and songs in French. There is also a neighborhood German Club, once a week, that she really enjoys. Eventually she will also study the Creole language at home from a Haitian teacher (she is already quickly picking up words and phrases from the Haitians we interact with). We wish we had her young brain to absorb as quickly as she does!
Another excitement of her week is her gym class. She chose gymnastics. One of her teachers is Trinity, along with two other young ladies. Grace really loves that gym class! After school, a few times a week, she and her friends make up their own little gymnastics class. She plays every afternoon with many of her school friends either at our home or at theirs (well, we all live close together!).
