Today we attended a parents' meeting with Sophia's portuguese teacher. She's going to start weekly Portuguese class next week. And you know what? I was slightly worried. I dreaded that she might not fancy going to another school after a whole day in school, the long journey there, that she might be tired and irritable, having to learn something else, not like the teacher, not like the other children... a myriad of things. And you know what? Her reaction exceeded expectations. She really looked keen and entered the room speaking Portuguese and playing the game. So I'm celebrating with a glass of Port wine. Cheers!
