The kids started school last Wednesday..
one day late.
We flew into Paris early Tuesday
and Steve insisted they start the next day.
I was worried about their jet lag..
but Steve was right.
The kids rallied and had a great start to school.
Stephen is a senior..
Hannah a freshman and
Will is in 5th grade.
The big coach bus picks them up
around the corner and they make the 45 minute
ride (together) to the American School of Paris,
which is located outside of the city.
Griffy cried all day.
He missed them so much.
I'm so proud of these kids.
It's not easy starting over
in a new school
but they're all finding their way.
They've made friends
and are getting involved.
I think it's going to be a great school year.
and trying to get organized
but here are a few pictures of our flat.
Some things I love about our flat..
the floors, the HIGH ceilings, the great amount
of space we have, the architectural details,
the fireplaces in all the bedrooms..and the amazing location.
I'm still getting used to the noise.
The early morning sounds of the garbage trucks...(we don't have to go to the dump anymore)...
the almost constant "WEE WAA" of the police/ambulance...
One of my favorite things about Paris
is that we walk everywhere.
Steve has a car for work
and for weekend trips to Ikea..
but I walk everywhere.
I go to the big grocery store (Casino)
once a week to stock up on basics.
And the best thing....they deliver my
groceries...right to my kitchen...for FREE.
