After Isabel finished her tennis lesson, we were eating some cherries right off the tree there, and she pointed out that this is the season of red fruit; cherries, strawberries and red currents are all ripe right about now. Perhaps that is why June, in Czech, is Červen, which means red.
It was her last tennis lesson for the season, and today was the last day of school. Sam’s report card was better than last year, but still not great. I was pleased that he got a 1 in IT, but he got a 2 in English, which is pure laziness. It was mostly a mix of twos and threes, with just two ones and one four (physics). Isabel had two twos and the rest ones, so I’m pretty happy about that.
Tonight, we went to an outdoor film. It’s walking distance, by the park, and tickets are normally much cheaper than at normal cinemas, so it’s a great deal. Tonight it was free, for some reason.
It was a French film, targeted at children but not a cartoon, about a boy in a small village and his rather huge dog, Belle. It was called Belle and Sebastian (2). Basically, it was Lassie, but in Switzerland, in 1945. Not a great film, by any stretch of the imagination, but some real pretty scenery.
