The Kids are learning too.

The other day I realised that we have probably shared a lot of the new things that we have experienced living here- but it dawned on me that the kids are getting a lot of new experiences as well.  Things that are unique to them – and unique to them living here.

Obviously there is the language, and so many other fundamental changes that go with living in a foreign country – but I was thinking more of the incidental things that are not part of living in France per se, but more an outcome of our particular experience of it.

A few that came to my mind are

  • rock-climbing
  • learning fencing at school
  • all 3 sharing a single bedroom
  • seeing deer in our yard
  • knowing something better than their parents (spoken French)
  • watching the Tour de France go through our village
