Frédéric took the boys skiing, and left me at home with the dog. I'm not complaining, though! Gala and I had a great, quiet vacation week at home. And I got these great post cards from the boys. In English, no less!
Noah lost no time getting to know the cook - he knows that that's the best way to get extra helpings!
Swim meets changed this year for Benjamin. No more splitting up results by year of birth - his category now includes 11-14 year olds. Yikes!
But he took the changes in stride, and had a great meet.
They also split up the regions differently this year due to the French regions reform (we are now supposed to say we are in "Hauts de France" instead of "Picardy"), so he's swimming against different kids than last year. One club is from the town of "Noyons," which Benjamin suggested wasn't such a great name for a swim team.... since it means "we drown" in French.
