A technophilic couple with a bilingual 12 year old and French-born 7 year old leave the USA again (2014), this time permanently, to return to France in pursuit of good food and a different approach to life. And cheese. (http://www.mfromage.fr/) The adventure continues.
children are adjusting well in the classroom ~ learning the daily
routines ~ helping set up snack ~ cleaning up ~ sitting on the potty.
The children are exploring the
classroom and all the different works. Favorites include washing hands
and painting. The Children are learning new songs and singing "old"
favorites. You may hear them singing new songs around the house. We have
also gone on a few walks. The children do very well holding each
other's hands and seem to enjoy going out and about. "
Another ton of pictures from Alex's second soccer game. JD is the official team photographer. Alex's team won 1-0. The official report "Les CE1/ CE 2 l 'emportent 1-0..resultat obtenu apres une forte
domination. Apres ce but, ils ont defendu de toutes leurs forces leur
avantage! A noter, l'arbitrage d'Alec Bates (élève du lycée)qui a été
recruté par le MSI."
Alex (#4) is playing soccer with his school and this year the team is part of a league with games every Saturday. His team won the first game 7-1 and Alex even played goal keeper for the second half. soccer pictures
Tuesday was back to school for Alex. He is in second grade (CE1, cours élémentaire), at Lycée Rochambeau. He was very excited to see his friends from last year and meet some new ones. Not much else to report. We'll spend the next week getting back into the groove of things.
Labor Day Weekend
We spent the weekend in DC, and for some reason ended up being where lots of folks were - Baltimore for some good Italian and then Port Discovery, but we didn't realize it was the Grand Prix. Then on Sunday we went to the Air and Space Museum which apparently everyone else decided to do since it was hot and humid. Alex's friend Frank-Eli came with us. Lots of running around the massive museum and some cool airplanes.
