It is true that women might have more difficulty getting rid of extra weight after having babies several times. But I want to tell Princess Mathilde that she is still very elegant and beautiful.

Is Eleonore attending Kindergarten or did she leave with her parents after bringing her siblings to school?

Those kids are absolutely gorgeous. It seems like yesterday that Eleanore was born and here she is going to kindergarten. All four seem to be such sweet kids. And the parents are bursting with pride (for a good reason).

Such great pictures! I see that the tradition of bringing flowers to the teacher/principal on the first day of school is kept in Belgium. Reminds me of when I went to primary school in USSR. Every year, on the first day of school I gave a bouquet of flowers to my classroom teacher. Her desk was had no room by the time all students were seated. It's a lovely gesture.

3 is the normal age for starting Kindergarten in many European countries. Prior to that parents have the chance
to bring their children to the nursery for babies and small children till the age of 3, but the number of these care
centres is often reduced. As far as I know college simply is another expression not another school system.


Here's an additional gallery of pics from yesterday - click on the pic to enlarge:

Primary school does end at 12 but Luisa Maria will be turning 16 in October and currently attends the Sevenoaks School in Kent, England.
