Happy Birthday to me!

Frédéric made me a cake, and the boys helped decorate it. Pretty cool!

Ready for winter, just in time

We finally got our firewood delivered... just in time. With temperatures around 7°C (44°F) in the mornings, we've started using the wood-burning stove in the mornings & evenings now. And this is the kind of help we had moving the wood to where we stacked it.

French pastry chefs

It had been a while since Noah made us a cake, but the mood struck him again yesterday. He made us a delicious chocolate cake - as usual, recipe-free.

And in an even more rare turn of events - the mood struck Benjamin, too! He made his very first apple pie, with Frédéric alongside to advise him. It was perfect!

The Real Hurrah

This was the real hurrah for me - back to school time!

Benjamin is in 5th grade (CM2) this year, and has a new teacher this year. He is in the same school as last year, which is a 3rd/4th/5th grade classroom.

Noah is in 3rd grade (CE2) this year, but not in the same classroom as Benjamin. They've split the 3rd graders into to sections, and Noah remains with the same teacher as last year, in the 1st/2nd/3rd grade classroom.
