Deux Petites Amies


I was standing outside an art gallery in Montmartre and heard the voices of children laughing and squealing with delight. I'm a teacher, I know the sweet sound of recess! I followed them till I peered over a wall and far below was a schoolyard. The students were just running around having fun with no visible playground equipment. I had to really zoom in but I was able to get a few shots. This one I cropped. J'adore these two amies. I can just hear their sweet, "Bonjours!" Kids are kids, no matter the language, don't you think? Another special Paris moment pour moi.

And for my Francophile friends, if you missed this last Sunday on the Super Bowl, Parisien Salon.com has it for you. You'll thank me for this one!

Very sweet, and I'd love to know what those little ones in the background are hatching, as it looks like there is mischief afoot. :) Thanks so much for that link, V ~ I'd never have seen the ad, and wow, how simple yet wonderful!

I think when you're a kid, all you really need is air and friends to have a good time.

Kids don't need "stuff" to have a good time. Just good friends. We could all take a lesson from them! Great shot!
