Alexandra cousin from France named Alexandre eleven years old, just made this poster for his class project. The subject was to illustrate some of the human rights. Alexandre wrote TOI + MOI = NOUS. ( YOU + ME = US and wrote the following sentence. NOUS AVONS TOUS DROITS A L"EDUCATION who means WE ALL HAVE THE RIGHTS TO RECEIVE EDUCATION. This so sweet and great to see that our future generation is thinking so wisely and kindly. Grand Bravo to Alexandre for his thoughts. Alexandra lives in the US where children with specials need receive education at school in the public with their peer, but this is not the case in France where specials need children have to go to some type of centers.

Alexandra smile has changed. She got a permanent front tooth pulled a month ago. The lesson is that sometime, maybe very often, you are the one who has to ask or tell your doctors what to do!
Her teeth were becoming cluttered and no one was saying anything! So I ask , and I was sent to my orthodontist. He told us to pull one teeth and it immediately made a big difference, because the one from the top was clutching on the one of the bottom. It was kind of a difficult decision, because you are never sure that you are doing the right thing...but I trust him, and I also trust my own intuition. Like her smile? Too cute.
