Dressed for School Success
The end of the French school year is fast approaching. The last official day of classes is Thursday, July 2. (Presumably, it's Tuesday the 29th for the little ones who don't go to school on Wednesday.)
Thus time is running out to snap a few pics of French school children. For some reason, I had expected them to all wear uniforms but the students in public schools in my area don't. Neither do these kids, who attend a private school in the 7th arrondissement, but they do sport smocks: pink for the girls and black or dark blue for the boys. Speaking as a parent who has fought in vain against stains from paint, magic markers, and lunch, I'd say it's not a bad idea.
