Things at school are better! The responsible teacher did take action! - she asked some students from the 9th grade to keep an eye on things. It seems that these kind of gangs fear more older studentsNegrito then teachers! Nevertheless, we will be keeping close attention on how things go on and we're in constant touch with the teacher. So far he hasn't been touched!! It has been hard because we're there on breaks but it has been working.
Wish i could give each one of you a flower!! for the wonderful support and comments through this hard week, ... but, as i can't i offer you some more photos form things around my house; a quote from Maya Angelou (one of my favourite female poets of our times!); and something (my son loves) to make you smile!!!!

I love this quote and i totally identify with it!:

“I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.
I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.
I've learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life. I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on bothhands; you need to be able to throw some things back.
I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.
I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.
I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Maya Angelou

Thank YOU Rosa Maria for the beautiful quote. All truth. I'm so glad that things seem to be working out now. I'm glad that this teacher is helping out, as some are afraid to.
You photos as usual are lovely.

Hi Rosa, what a beautiful poem. I am so glad it is going better with your son at school! I enjoy looking at the pictures of your house. You asked me about the Delft blue pictures. The girls on the picture were there because of the Open Monument day. It always attracts a lot of visitors! Delft knows how to please the public! Have a wonderful weekend! Lieve groet, Madelief

Oi Rosa!! Thank you for stopping by. Yes, we were born in Brazil, but we grew up in Argentina. We understand 100% Portuguese so you can write us in your language, but we will have to answer in English or Spanish!...sorry, but we haven't practice our first language since we were teenagers!!! Let us tell you that Portugal is in our list next time we go to Europe, hopefully (and if the Euro helps) soon!!!. Just read your post about your Son and the bullies,...have a little story for you: When Clara was 6 there was a kid in her class...bully with capital "B". Our Dad, waited for him a day in front of the school and told the little prick: If you ever touch my know the rest...The kid terrorized the school for a whole year, sent a little girl to the hospital to get stitches, but never touched or looked at Clara...I'm not sure that will work these days, specially where we live now...There is something to be said about the old days when kids had respect for adults and when an adult was able to put a kid back in his/her place (and nobody will get offended)We wish your Son the best this school year and we hope the problem gets resolved soon...unfortunately our Dad is too old now to go help you!! LOL!!! Obrigado again for the visit!!!Beijos and abracos!!!
Marcela & Clara

That´s a big relief that he was not harmed. Let´s hope it will stay that way with the help of the elder students and the school keeping focused.
Have a great weekend,
