About those bats...

Six or eight of them, at least, are living in our garage!

Great Discussions with the Neighbors

Noah, coming back in from riding his bicycle: I had a great discussion with Sylvie and Marie.
Me: Oh? What did you talk about?
Noah: Grass, septic tanks, and bats.

Totally normal 11-year-old boy topics. Of ourse.

Parc Astérix

The school year is winding down - the boys have five weeks left, but the grading period is over, so we're not sure what the final five weeks are really for. They were off school today because the 9th graders had a test, so we went to Parc Astérix. It was a great day for it - great weather, and hardly any lines!

Top chefs

Somehow I don't think I'll ever get tired of the boys learning how to cook.

Radishes from Noah's garden, which he prepared for us, artistically
