Kendall's school was closed today because of the road conditions. We had a rough (but necessary) trip to the grocery store this morning. Today has been so good for me. I am reminded why I love my life. My 'job' is so fulfilling for me. The girls and I have cuddled and played, I have all the clothes unpacked, washing, folded. All the toys put away, the pantry fully stocked, Super Bowl dips and munchies ready for tomorrow and a big bowl of cucumber salad (his favorite) marinating in the fridge just waiting for Brian's return tomorrow night. I love traveling, experiencing, learning...but I really love home and our day to day life.
Paris blog post and pictures to come when I can get them downloaded. We had a blast, it was a fantastic trip.

I'm loving all the wine, bread, and cheese :) Everyone has been very friendly so far. I'm no less excited about moving here maybe slightly more nervous? Mostly just ready to start learning the language. We're having a lot of fun. I miss the girls and will be so excited to see them tomorrow!

We took good naps, but kind of short ones. When Lorie got home, she said we needed to be outside because it was warmer than it has been for a long time. We played for a while, and then it got chillier and she had to put sweaters over our clothes. It wasn't cold enough for our big coats.
Lorie didn't notice that Kate was stepping on the ground that was a little wetter than the other spots. Kate did not like what it did to her shoes, but it didn't stop her going in the grass. Kendall didn't go in the grass after she saw Kate's shoes.

On the drive here a gas station attendant gave Kendall these "ear muscles"

I'm expecting a package today, Kendall calls him the "Eww-E-S Man" (instead of UPS). Sometimes she says, "But he doesn't stink Mommy, he isn't yucky"
The comment about visiting Lorie's house comes from two different possibilities. 1) She has good snacks, even I raid her pantry when I visit. 2) Today I made a list for Lorie of possible food ideas for the girls (sometimes I get stumped on what to feed them). Kendall saw it and asked what it was and I told her snacks that we could eat at Aunt Lorie's house.
