We felt so lucky, we were able to drive out of Paris ahead of the snow on Wednesday, and thru the swirls in the Alsace and Black Forest, all the way back to Munich. Thursday, we woke up to snowy skies, and snowy fields by the school. The cool thing is the kids can bring their sleds (sledges) to school, and play all through recess and then in the 30 min after school that it is still light out.

After promising Sophia a puppet show after church, we were dismayed to realize that we had missed the start by 30 min, so she was consoled by the endless rides on the carousel at Trocadero.
We feel so very fortunate that when we arrive in paris we can call our favorite person in the entire world to watch the girls (thanks Leilani!!!) and have a few date nights. We spent the first night walking by Notre Dame and then off to Mexican food, Monday at Georges (on top of the Pompidou museum), and Tuesday with friends Kate & Marc with amazing food. Unfortunately we only took a few photos, too distracted by great food and conversation!

After being amazingly late to church on Sunday (I don’t think we were EVER this late before), we finally made it, and then were able to meet our new friend Benjamin after the service. His parents, Annie & Jon, are so proud, and we fee so lucky to have been able to meet him. Sophia was especially proud to be able to hold him first,
while I just had to standby and Alexandra reminded Philip how cute she is and then the parents took over, and Annie & Jon shared their joy We were just so thrilled to be part of his introduction to people in his life. Thanks for sharing Benjamin with us!!
