We are going to Euope with our youngest two kids, Daughter #3 and Small Son. We have several goals on this trip: We want to expose them to another way of speaking, eating, paying for things, and living that is different from our way, but still a good way. Just Different. Handsome Husband wants to see Belleau Wood and Verdun, the sites of WWI and WWII battles. SS wants to see a real castle (with ghosts, preferably), D#3 wants to see Paris (specifically Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Louvre); I want to see my friends in Beaune and also see the Louvre since I have been an artist for decades now, lived in France for a year and never seen it! These next 10 entries w

This was Prep Day. I was off work. I collected last-minute things, organized, cleaned house, and generally worried about things. Our flight to JFK was wide open, Daughter #2 got us to the airport in plenty of time, and we had only aisles and windows to choose from. I tried to sleep, but it was just too uncomfortable.
