September - more school, great weather

Mairie de Levallois

We have had amazing weather so far, clear, blue, sunny skies, high 60's-low 70's, much different than the end of August which was gray and cool and rainy.  Alex loves school, Vincent is adjusting to his full day.

-Alex's first soccer practice, every Wednesday 5:45 - 7:15 p.m at the stadium in our town.
-A much needed haircut for Vincent. He was very tired it was right after school, and they put gel in it for him.
-Dinner at Sebillon, a fancy old Parisian restaurant with Lisa Stevens who was in town for work.  It was Thursday night so Alex and Vincent were very tired, but they still managed to eat the escargots.
-Back to school night for Alex's class.

La Rentrée (Back to School)

école Jules Ferry, Levallois-Perret, France

Alex            8 yrs old  CE2  (third grade)
Vincent        3 yrs old  petite section

Alex and Vincent were both very excited to go back to school.  We all enjoyed the seven block walk to their school.  The elementary school is right next door to the maternelle.  Alex went for the entire day (8:30 - 3:30), but Vincent only went for 40 minutes this first day. Vincent didn't want to leave the class though!  Alex said his teacher is very nice.  It was a very good day.

Alex and Vincent

Vincent's class
First we went back home, stopped by the market, then back to Vincent's school for 40 minutes in his class the first day.
