Back to normal.....sort of....

Well, time sure does fly.  Especially when you're trying to figure what to do with your life.  More on that in another post.....!

Carnaval ended with the burning of the King of Carnaval (funny because they keep the Queen of the Carnaval in Nice for the next year), you can see the ball of fire there in the sea, and fireworks which we luckily can see from our terrace.

Then E had her 3rd birthday.  E has become such a little tomboy princess.  She loves playing hard with the boys, but also loves pink and wearing "dancing dresses"- as she calls them.  So, the birthday fairy left her a new pink scooter just her size so now she can keep up with T in the park and look ever so girlie.

The night before the kids and I made our new "special recipe" mini zucchini-carrot muffins for E to bring to her Kid's Club class.  In the evening we had a little family thing at home and she decorated a box for her dummies and left them for the dummy fairy to know... for the new babies who need them.  Thankfully the scheme worked, being sooo attached to her dummy prior, ever since she hasn't had a problem going without them. :)  Whew!!!

Then the kids had a two week holiday from school so we tried our hand at pottery.  It's great because the kids can just mold what they want, the people who run it help them learn how to work the clay properly, and you return for a second visit to do the painting and glazing.  I'll make a little video once the projects are all finished, but here's a sneak peak. Even Daddy got in on it.  We have to go back once they're fired so we can glaze them.

There are so many things to do that are especially designed for the kids here in France.  This was one I really liked getting involved in too.  It's fun getting all messy with them and making things.

To be continued......  :)
