    Learning to code with Python – the end of the month

    May is over. I am glad about it. It was a difficult month and I hope June will be better. This is also the end of my learning to code with Python project. As already said, I did not reach all of my goals. The month was very busy and on the top of that, we faced some computer problems. However, I worked on my Python skills every day and could review a lot of basic Python knowledge.

    Learning to code with Python – third week

    This is my third week of learning to code with Python.

    Learning to code with Python – first week

    This week was exhausting. Not so much because it was the first week of the Learning to code with Python challenge though. There was a lot to do at work. All the colleagues in my working group were sick the all week and it was very stressful. Moreover, because of the bad weather, the children could not go so much to the playground and therefore did not always behaved as we would have wished. This is the reason why I could not write this post until now. But I still could work on my Python skills every day. Not as much as I wanted, but still every day. Learning to…

    Starting a new project

    I just finished the month of reading aloud a lot. It was a lot of fun, even if it was not always easy to find time to read to the children. We read a lot of different books and my daughter read several books alone, which made me very proud. Now it is the right time for starting a new project. After the reading aloud challenge… I will of course keep reading to the children. The new issues of our children magazines have just arrived by post, so we will have new stories to read. Moreover, my daughter came back from school with a caterpillar image. Each day, she has…
