Last night we met with most of the families and children of Prima B, along with La Maestra, for an end-of-year celebratory dinner at an agriturismo in Costabissara. I'm not sure who loved her gift better -- the little artists who created the pictures bound into the book or La Maestra. Though Young One is a bit hesitant with her hugs and kisses for her teacher, many of the kids were literally all over her. A serious woman who is usually all business, all the time, I think she liked it, a lot.
Three cheers for first graders the world over! (And their teachers, too! I couldn't do it.)
