My Confirmation

VincentconfirmationWe are in year 8 now, that’s the time of certain rites of becoming an adult. 😉  Here people either celebrate Confirmation or Jugendweihe.

Confirmation is a ceremony for 13 or 14 year-old teenagers at  church; from this day on they are full members of the congregation and  have the same rights and responsibilities as an adult.

My Confirmation was on 12th May, 2013. It was a rainy day in the morning but later, for the photos,  it was sunny :). After the ceremony at church I celebrated with my family. We took lots of pictures with my Grandma & Grandpa and Dad & Mum and the rest of the family…but the camera was out of order so we  only have pictures of the ceremony in the church.

We celebrated into the night, because it was the most important day in my life 🙂 🙂 🙂

Our German Easter in Brittany ;-)

Our German friends decided to share some of their Easter goodies with us. Many, many delicious thanks to them. 🙂

Before going on their Spring break, they posted a surprise parcel:-) We got it and we coudn’t wait to taste their sweet butterflies and chocolate eggs. Their bunny was much quicker than our messengers which , hopefully, will be in Hildburghausen on time. We can’t say more. It is a secret. Sh! shh!

Team France.

P.S: Our two new mascots Georg II, which bravely went through a cloning machine in Germany and Mrs Foxy, Mr Foxy’s friend, have met Zeus, our first mascot from Greece. We will keep you posted on their life with us and tell you how they behave. 3 friends together, we better keep a close eye on them 🙂
