One afternoon while I stayed at the house and worked as Alma slept Susan took the other kids to the Pezenas toy museum.

We let the kids pick out some ice cream to try to cool down when we were walking around town one day. Unfortunately Alma felt a bit left out- so we found a way for her to cool off as well.
Micah turned 6 on Saturday.
We had a fantastic time together celebrating another year with our funny boy.
He had a great time on his birthday – family and friends – lego – playing in the yard which turns into hide-and-go-seek – turns into head-lamp and flashlight games – turns into bike riding with headlamps down the road in the dark.
Of the three older kids Micah has definitely had a harder time adjusting to the language, school etc – but he has not let all that affect his sense of humor. He is still a very funny kid.
This birthday also seems like a bit of a turning point for all of us, as Micah was the first to celebrate a birthday after we moved to France, so this is his third birthday here. So that means we’re now starting on our third time around on things. Third start of a school year, third autumn, third everything
The amphitheater is apparently one of the best preserved in the Roman world. While not the same size as the colosseum in Rome – it is impressively intact for what its been through over the past 2 millennia
