New ticker !

Have you noticed I have a new ticker? Yes, we're going to go to Germany from the 21 st of december to the 28th ! We're going to stay at the marine's base in Stuttgart with Chuy's niece and her family. I'm fine with that trip because they now have a high speed train now. It will take us 3 hours 40 minutes from Paris to Stuttgart. Before, we would have had to take an overnight train which could have been a nightmare with a 2 years old It's not going to be my first christmas in another country because I spent one christmas in Mexico and many in Texas but it's going to be my first in another european country (can we say an american base is still german? ) It's going to be my first vacation in 14 years ! During this time I lived in different countries but I've never been in vacations ... It's also nice for the kids to spend time with their cousin and little cousins. I also hope they will improve their communication skills: no more french but only english and spanish for a whole week.

The meeting with the teachers went okay. As expected Emma is doing great, still in the lead Pierre still has his difficulties but he improves in others fields like communicating, asking for help, and so on ... What could have been his life without his stroke ... ?

I didn't blog yesterday: I feel I bore people with my posts ... I did scan the picture and put it in my photo album. I do progress steadily but I have a lot of white and different shades of beige to stitch in the vase.

WOW!!! Your vacation sounds like it will be amazing. Me, who has only ever travelled 3 places - New Brunswick (Canada) and Florida and New York (USA), so I'm a little green with envy.

Glad to hear the kids are doing well in school! Good for Pierre in asking for help. It is a challenge for kids to ask for help sometimes.

Your posts are fun and I look forward to your updates. They don't bore me at all.

Great work on the vase, stitching white can be so tedious.

I'm glad you are getting a vacation. I'm envious of your high speed trains, that would be too cool.
