You just can't plan these things. Virginia. One day your grandchildren will look at these photos and realize what a grand adventure it all was. They look like little French ones. Their mother and father must be delighted.

That first shot is wonderful! It looks like corks make great toys!

Wonderful photos. The first is my favorite, but I love them all.

Mumsie,
Great pictures! So when I look at the blog and see pictures of the kids, they are hardly ever wearing any clothes I have seen before. How many outfits has Melissa bought over there? Tell her I want some cool, fancy french accesories or pjs even!!

Hope y'all are doing well! Things in Forest Park are rather uneventful!

You really are working so well with light. Lovely soft and natural as are the kids always. Monoprix was my daily port of call in Montpellier. One of the best ways to get to grips with the language a shopping trip to the supermarket.

How have you found conversing?

Wonderful and such memories for those two adorable Grands!

We all want some French pjs, mumsie. AKA zsa-zsa. AKA Ginger.

I love it all, especially the doors.

I wonder how long it will take French wine makers to switch from corks to screw caps?

That shot of the corks in the copper kettle was worth the trip. And I like the doors too.

Seems like you're having a great time.
