{23 - 29 June 2013 | week 26}

1 July 2013

It's week 26 and halfway through the year already ! Our colour scheme this week follows the traditional colours of the Seafoam kit ~

What happened this week ?

The children had their school end of year {spectacle} last Saturday but I have included it in this week as they wanted to write some journal cards. Zachary and Noah both chose to write in French, as this is the language that they speak at school. I wore some fabulous high wedge sandals and we had lots of fun !

I got a new lens for my camera, a {nifty fifty} 50mm fixed.  I popped it on for the first time and took a super photo of Zachary. I made my favourite French onion tart that we never grow tired of.  Another thing Molly never grows tired of is throwing stones in the lake and I snapped a few shots of her using the VSCO cam application.  I am really impressed with this app and all the different filters.  I have included eight additional photos from this afternoon in an insert page (not shown).

Noah spent the afternoon at the {big} school at Virieu le Petit with Zachary. He will start there in September and is very much looking forward to it. We finished the school week with excellent end of year reports :)

And on Saturday the 100th Tour de France started in Corsica. The finish line was moved as a bus got stuck, then the bus was freed and the original finish line was reinstalled and then there was a big crash with less than 3km to go. You have to love the drama of the Tour !
