Dan and I just got back from a week in Paris and it was amazing. We saw so much and took so many pictures that I can't wait to scrapbook it. From the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre Dame, the Seine River Cruise and every other old building and street it was amazing. The main reason for going was that my Host Sister Julia was getting married in Versailles. I was an exchange student in 1997 to Germany and she meet a great guy in France Nicolas. They got married in Versailles on August 27th at the City HAll (fabulous building). Then we drove out to the French Countryside and had an amazing reception. It was a long flight and a great week but it will be memories that last a lifetime.

Sorry I have been so silent this past month. We have been finishing our deck and I have been trying to get spend the last few days of summer with the boys. I am back at work starting last week and today is my first day teaching. It is kind of werid being back and having a new set of kids with teaching the same things. I keep seeing my students from last year and missing them. It is easy when you already have a relationship with student to teach them. However most of my students I have had an older sibling so I know the family..sometimes that is good and sometimes not.

I am going to be really busy this week packing for Paris. My husband and I are leaving next Saturday and I am so excited. I can't wait to see my Host Sister Julia get married in Versailles. Well go to go teach..
talk to you soon.. hopefully.
