    It was father’s day yesterday but they have a lot of fêtes (celebrations) in France so I guess it isn’t as big a deal here. I thought there were going to do more but the boys told me that for mother’s day it is a big deal with flowers and candy and doing chores and taking her out. But for father’s day it is more like dinner and a card.  We …

    Last night the boys and I had dinner at grandma and grandpa’s house. Mom and dad were down the road at an inauguration of a new store which really is just a big party for all the Super-U owners in the area. It was my first time meeting them and they were both very nice. The grandma is just like the grandmothers you see on TV. She takes care of everything for …

    I made it to the home of my host family! But so far I have realized that my two terms of French is going to make this a lot more difficult. There is a saying that came to mind, I know just enough to be dangerous. Meaning I can say some things, but not enough to say everything I want to but enough for them to think I know a …

    So last night they took me out to their favorite restaurant in the countryside. It turns out that the Dad, Jean-Marie, has lived in Dol his entire life and his parents still live down the road from their house. It doesn’t mean that they haven’t done well. They own the local Super-U, sort of like Super WalMart, but a lot smaller. It is still the 4th largest chain supermarket in …

    This will most definitely be a recurring title for my blog posts. Obviously because the French love to eat and in that 3 hours (no joke) is when you get to know people the most. For example… Last night we went to some family friend’s house for drinks and dinner. They have 2 boys and the dad travels around the world selling beds, chairs, pillows and the like to hospitals. He …

    Woke up sorta late (10am) and ate breakfast alone because Pierre was out at a bike race and the other two had soccer games. Mom and dad had to work (makes me appreciate that my parents were always at my games no matter what!). Hung out a big and cleaned my room until PIerre got back and we had lunch. He actually cooked! I mean it was frozen food and pasta but …

    oday we went to the worlds first bridge that makes electricity from the tide in St. Malo/Dinan. In Brittany, there is a law that a person cannot own property directly on the ocean so that there can be public space for people to walk on trails. So that is is what we did today after touring the hydro-electric plant in the bridge.  It was built in 1966, and supplies electricity for …

    So far the adventure for today was getting up and going to (finally) buy a cell phone. That was an adventure because nothing in French shops really makes any sense. But that is fine.  Also, randomly, lots of songs that have some sentimental meaning have been following me. Not just the obvious popular songs but the more obscure ones that no one else I know has start playing on the radio …

    Today was another pretty boring day. I just hung out all day and in the morning I went for a run. No where far just out of the house. After lunch I went to town in search of something to do. I didn’t find it there though. I walked to the librarie (book store) and checked that out for a little while. One of the ladies there was so nervous …

    I made a mistake today. Tuesday I went to pick up Adrien from school and that was cool. Yesterday they didn’t have school so we all just hung out. Today I wasn’t sure if I was supposed to go and pick up Adrien again or if he was just getting a ride from his mother. So when it was raining at the end of school time I assumed that he was …
