{28 July - 3 August 2013 | week 31}

4 August 2013

It's week 31 and the summer school holidays are in full swing ~

What happened this week ?

We started the week with Zachary having to leave for the hospital at Lyon for 3 days for his annual check up for his Type 1 Diabetes.  He tried to be brave but it's very hard for him to be apart from us, it broke my heart to leave him in tears in the hospital at bed time on Monday evening :( He brightened up on Tuesday when he found some other children to play with and he was able to come home on Wednesday :)

Grandma and Grandpa left on Tuesday morning to start their trip back home to Orkney. We enjoyed their visit immensely and hope they can visit again next year.
