Weather Alert

Beware! The great French snowpocalypse of 2013! The Loire Valley of France doesn’t get much snow, but they get plenty of rain.

A Little on the Company

A Little on the Company

So I’m working for a company that designs industrial systems and buildings – here’s an example of a boat that Max designed for Total.

Getting Started

Getting Started

First day at the new job! Some notable moments:
– Everyone “bises” each person in the office when they arrive at work.
– Everyone gets an hour for lunch in their 35 hour work week.
– I have a dual screen computer (clearly necessary).

Football (Soccer)

It was a beautiful, sunny, freezing day in the countryside to watch Max’s soccer match. They didn’t win, but Max was pleased that he played well and scored several points.
*Not pictured: herds of cows roaming behind the field.
** Also not pictured: the snack bar where I was taking shelter. Which happens to be more bar and less snack.

New Pet?

You can buy chickens at French Home Depot!

Settling In

Max and I have spent all day unpacking and getting the house set up, so I thought people might like to see some pictures! Some items to look for (if anyone enjoys the occasional game of “I Spy”): Ben’s artwork and digital photo frame, kitchen utensils from Mom and Dad, and a lobster mascot. The blue casserole dish from the Richmond Smiths has also taken up residence in our kitchen. I’ll definitely be hanging some pictures here soon!
