A technophilic couple with a bilingual 13 year old and French-born 8 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.
Alex has been enjoying his two week Spring Break (April 17 - May 2). We've been to the playground a lot, and met friends in the Champ de Mars for picnics. Alex even got to ride the "horses" in the Champ de Mars - we think some are really donkeys.
pictures Yesterday was Alex's 4th birthday! He wanted to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower, then we took him out to the lunch of his choice, Chinese. We had a really nice day, including opening cards and presents from family and friends. Then it was time for the "homemade"(=store bought and assembled) strawberry shortcake birthday cake.
We're a bit behind in posting, the weather has turned nice and Rachel and Jon are in town visiting and it's Spring Vacances so...here are pictures from earlier in the month. The Loire Valley trip we just did is coming soon.
pictures. more pictures. more pictures. Last Tuesday night we attended the second night Seder the Kehilat Gesher held for the Franco American community. We really enjoyed it, and Alex liked the matzoh ball soup.
I've also signed Alex up for the Kinomichi class on Wednesdays with the other 4 and 5 year olds and he likes it.
Other than that, we've been enjoying some sunny days in Paris.
Pictures. Towards the end of last week it turned cool and chilly again. But we still managed to go to the park after school on Friday. During the weekend we went to watch a game at McBride's, then Alex chased the ducks in Les Halles. On Monday for the first Seder for Passover, JD cooked a chicken and made matzoh stuffing and charoset. We even found some good "Herzog" collection red wine, and horseradish.
