About time!


It's been a few months since the last post, 5 months to be exact, and we have made a few adjustments to our life. The biggest one being that we have settled down, for now at least. In September, as we were in France visiting family, we were walking around Paris and suddenly there were no kids in the street...School had just started! It felt so lonely having the only kids in town and by that time we had spent sooooo much time together that I got a little envious of all the parents who had their kids in the school! The next day we were scheduled to fly back to Florida, but the universe had other plans for us. Hurricane Dorian was well on its way to hit Florida and we got news that our flight was canceled with a possibility of full refund...huh? How often does that happen? About 5 minutes after this news we decided we should stay in France for a while, in my parents' house in Normandie. So I called the local school and they said they would take them as early as the next day. I don't know if I mentioned that while my kids speak French they didn't know how to read or write in French, but we all love the house and took a leap of faith. Next, we had to start buying sweaters and warmer clothes, I was about to experience my first fall and winter in 20 years!
