France! Toward the end of our trip, we were barely in control. Since we had all(not Ron) vowed not to cut our hair the entire 7 months, it was no surprise that it had lost the battle several weeks before. We hadn’t come to do the things other families do, or to send home the photos others send home. And that was a good thing. Because we were having too much enjoyment out of photo failures.
Some of my favorite French moments . . . . What’s ‘fromage’?
Somebody once said: “when you try to control everything, you enjoy nothing.” And I get it.
I know I drive them crazy with schedules, lessons, practices, studies and all but it is how we function. And when I say “we” I mean “me”: it’s how I function. I have to have plans, goals, milestones, and objectives. But we all need ‘free time’ and occasionally ‘me time’ to explore, let our minds wander, and sometimes just sit in each other’s company just waiting for the gems to pop out of their mouths, into our minds.
“What did we love most about our world trip?” I guess I would have to say, the moments in-between.
And just when you think you cannot get it right, no matter what, the accidental Christmas Card photo appears!
Have a great weekend!
