The lastest news just in from France.

Yes, they really do grow lavender in rows here! I always wondered what that looked like...unfortunately all of the plants have bloomed out now, and are neatly trimmed back. I was glad to see that they trim them just how I do and they seem to be growing in very poor, rocky soil, similar to mine too! The days have been a mixture of sun and rain, indoor and outdoor activities. Right now the sun is shining so the boys are going to go play tennis for a few hours this afternoon. Alinya is napping and Maria is upstairs reading a book. Yesterday was our only beautiful, sunny, clear sky day so far and we were out checking out the gorges around here. There are also a lot of beautiful old villages to see. You COULD spend days taking in all of the sights but our travelling partners' interest is limited...not to mention their patience:) Thankfully there are a lot of things to do right here in front of our nose that are very fun. The big thing to do here is float the river but it is definately too late unless you are equipped with the right gear..waterproof stuff. We've had fun anyway, and we have discovered yet another place to come back to. There was a market here today and it was full of interesting things to eat, wear and smell. The street was closed so we had a relaxing hour checking out what the french eat! There were some things that I have never seen before, let alone eaten. The bakeries are delish...not enough time in the day to eat all of the things that tempt us:) A real weight watchers vacation...wish you were here. Well, maybe not all of you since I don't really even know who lurks around on this blog...maybe you don't brush your teeth often or something. Or wear deoderant--peee-uuuu. Or maybe you just take a french shower. Hee Hee.

The real birthday

Another party, another cake, more we have a 6 year old boy at our house! He requested spaghetti on the table for dinner so that is why there are some extremely bad table manners being displayed. He chose the utensils that each one had to eat with.

Liam's party

Liam had a party today with his school friends.

more bday

Ralph's birthday. He requested a scooter with big wheels. An after lunch nap while being covered with hay


Our local motocross took place last weekend.


Numerous events have taken place but haven't made it onto the blog. Life is full but fun..getting one year older doesn't hurt as much as one might think:)

Liam's class went to the chalet to pick apples one day. Dylan's class went on a bike ride and asked for parents to come along so Ralph went. Alinya's morning hair, quite a showing some days!
