Benjamin's Creation

Benjamin is becoming a real genius with his Legos. He made this spaceship out of a kit that is originally for a race car, and it's only one of his many imaginative creations.

He also took these pictures himself with his camera.

Cousins and Museums

Our cousins from Montana came to visit for a few days, and we had a great time catching up with them!

We visited the WWI Museum in Meaux one day. We had the most amazing weather while they were here, a beautiful Indian summer the likes of which we haven't seen in years.

Fall Baking

Some of Noah's creations this fall:

A "soufflé essoufflé" - this one rose like a soufflé, but then fell down, but it tasted good anyway!

Birthday cake for me - crumbly, but tasty!

Grilled Marshmallow  Cake - a nice change from all the chocolate cakes! A new, creative idea from Noah, and it worked out very well.

Last Hurrah

The boys' gymnastics club closed down this year, for a lot of (stupid) reasons. We were very disappointed, but fortunately have found another gymnastics club for them to join this year. The boys participated in the town's "sports fair" as a final event with their old club. Benjamin was feeling shy at first, but finally got into it and did some good flips.

Back to school!

Here they are, all ready for 2nd and 4th grade! Noah has the same teacher as last year, and Benjamin has a new teacher. Both are happy to go back to school.
