Wine and tapas

Last night, I and friend N were invited over to Mitzie Mee in Dubai Marina to enjoy wine and tapas. The view from their balcony is stunning and the location absolutely perfect! I really like the Marina area and hadn't it been for my lovely kids, I would definitely opted for an apartment there.

Today the school arranges student led conferences, which means that you sit for half an hour together with your child in the class room and go through all their school material. It is a great opportunity to see what they do in class and you are supposed to interact, ask good questions and be generally supportive. They always send out these guidelines to the parents prior to the conferences. Are there really parents out there who need a reminder to be supportive of their children's work? I have booked the first session with Joli's teacher and then she is off for her weekly swimming lesson and during that time, I'll sit with Elias. After that I promised to drop them off at the community center where Elias is going to buy a few more fishes for his aquarium and perhaps a small treat at the café before they head home with Teresa and I'll return to work.

  1. I'm happy you could come the other day:) Student led conferences sounds like a really good idea. Can the parents opt for extra lessons?

    1. The kids were so proud showing me all their work so I do believe this is a great arrangment and how can you not be supportive when you see all their hard work?
