We've been home for a whole week now, and have enjoyed the yard every single day. The weather has been just about perfect (for northern France) - warmish and sunnyish, just right for spending longer amounts of time outside without getting too hot or too cold.
Frederic is back to his crazy hours, which is going to take some getting used to, but that does mean I don't have to get up with the kids most days since he typically will only work early mornings 2 out of 8 days.
Today after church we went to Frederic's coworker's house to pick up our other set of house keys, and there was a "brocante" (flea market) in their town, so we strolled around there this afternoon. I saw a couple of light fixtures that would have been good for my office & the dining room, but since we were there near the end of the day, by the time I convinced Frederic to go look at them, the people had packed up and left. So our lightbulbs will remain naked a while longer. What's the rush? It'll only be 3 years in August! We have plenty of time!
Noah enjoyed his first apple yesterday, to our great amusement.
And I think it's time to limit Benjamin's TV viewing -- the other day he came out with, "Merci, copinou !" That's "Thanks, (girl)friend!" He is Mr Parrot these days and sure makes us laugh!
