Elena :-D

:-D Just returned home from a parent teacher interview with Elenas teacher at school. And it was excellent, I don´t know why I get so nervous .... Apparently nearly all of the behavioral problems have evaporated, although her cheekyness, assertiveness and the need to be kept constantly active and challenged remains ;-) I´m guessing that´ll be with her forever :-D And if channelled her strength. From not knowing a word of English in August she´s now happily chatting away in Scottish, at this the teacher laughed. And her writtten work is far above average, even I could see that. A five year old composing 3 full sentences (with intresting spelling admittedly) without any help and then doing detailed drawings to complement the text ! She was apparently moved from the normal maths group to the advanced one where she is coping perfectly and has a remarkable grasp of history, near and far.

O.k. Bragging over, but I just wanted to share :-D I´m well aware of the fact that she´s difficult, as a teacher I´ve had pupils like her, who if not kept active and well disciplined are a constant source of aggravation and distress, as well as a severe disrupting element. However if the teacher manages to keep a tight discipline, and a constant supply of difficult chores then the pupil turns out to be a very pleasant surprice ;-P

I don´t think I need to worry about her, she´ll land on her feet wherever we go :-D

Hiya Gunnella, That is great news about your little one!

Speaking of education, can I ask if you happen to know of any art/photography schools in Edinburgh or any where in Scotland where one could take some short (one to three month) courses in photography? I am thinking of coming to Europe to study photography and perhaps later pick up French or English and am having little luck on the internet. I 'd appreciate any information that you could pass on.

Take care!
