Our Family’s (2nd) Year in the South of France
Kids and Castles - Our year with kids in the South of France

The Kids’ Perspective: 3 Days In

Both L and Z really like the money in France.  They think it’s pretty and like all the different colors – just like Junior Monopoly. They asked why American money is all the same.  I don’t know the answer.  Anybody?

They went to the “downtown” of our village with JM to see if the ice cream place was open – of course it was the one day of the week that it’s closed down. But they got to explore some very cool medieval architecture, narrow twisty roads, saw a horse and rider go by, and play on the playground.  What did they like the best?  The Grasshopper!!!

They went to a neighboring village and there they saw their first castle of the trip – where they also did find ice cream. That was cool for them, although they got there 20 minutes before it closed so didn’t get to go inside.  But they had their ice cream so they were o.k. with that.

My children are impressed with the oddest things.  I will embrace it as “the wonder of a child”.

    I’m sorry you’ve been so ill. Blech. I hope it passes very soon. I caught the swine flu in DC last year two weeks before we went to France…

    Every time we come home from abroad I am struck by how ugly our money is. Boring.

    My youngest too would be thrilled by a grasshopper…

    The kids look so cute in that picture! You’ll have to find some renaissance clothes to dress them up in!
