When my kid grows up, she will be able to say she used to summer in France and take sailing lessons. Actually, my sister and I once summered in France when we were kids, so I guess we are just continuing our family traditions.
Lily and I spent a long time in Michigan this summer and then three glorious weeks in France. In Michigan, our days involved the beach, the Saugatuck Dunes State Park, the gym, ice cream, and watching deer in my dad’s back yard. In France, our days involved wine tasting, the beach, ice cream, going to the bakery, and casually strolling the streets of Arcachon.
It was a good summer. We are back in Congo now and only have eight or nine months left here before we leave! Forever! We have no idea where we are going next. I will let you know when we know. In the meantime, enjoy some photos:
