France (1) The House...

I have(gulp) many photos from France to sort through so I'll do my best to limit it to just a handful and spread them over a few posts.

I thought I'd start with just a few of Steve's parents house where we stayed during our time in France (except the three nights in Paris). 

The house itself is in the Burgundy area in a small village a few miles away from Cluny. It was the perfect place to catch up on napping and reading after a busy year!

{The back of the house the night of the storm- more about that later!}

{Haystacks in the garden were a great obstacle course for Ben}

Back in the real world, Steve and I have been back at work since Monday and Ben starts his new school year tomorrow. I think Steve and I both feel pretty blessed to do a job that we love (teaching) despite all the bureaucracy and crazy political agendas! 

Hope you're all well.Rxxx
