yes 21 more days to go! we'll be heading to paris, toulouse, cahors...thank you to friends whom already wrote to me about my trip and your list of recommendations. for the next few weeks, i'm going to be busy finishing up some work and practicing my french. this weekend was for the most part quite relaxing. i helped a friend babysat her 4 year old daughter. we had a fake picnic at the front porch, jamie said vanessa can you just pretend you're in the park :) we played hike and seek, drank tea, ate cookies and almonds, strawberries with chocolate sauce...hmm the joy of being with a kid! hope you had a wonderful, restful weekend.
