Happy Father’s Day ~ 2018

I wanted to take a moment to recognize two very important father’s in my life. The first is my father, the man who taught me some truly wonderful things about life. He taught me what is to be kind and generous. He taught me to how to be a responsible person and gave me important life lessons; like how to handle finances, how to treat people with compassion and how to trust others. Most importantly he showed me unconditional love and for that I will be forever grateful, because of his love and guidance I am a much better person. His heart is honest and true and I endeavor to achieve what he has done in his life. He has created the most beautiful family that I am so proud to be part of.

 

The second person is my best friend, my partner for life, my confident and father to my beautiful twin girls, Aria and Alexa! JB is the happiest person I know to have become a father. Papa for JB is pure joy and happiness. I can not express through words how grateful I am that we are blessed with such a beautiful life and amazing children. I am so excited to keep exploring this world with him and to go on many more family adventures together. Happy Father’s Day! We love you with all of our hearts.

 

 

School

Preschool Years

Today was our last day of our first year of preschool! It was our first year of being in a learning environment with kids our age (or very close to) and teachers promoting a love a schooling, an atmosphere of fun and learning how to socialize with our peers. Our school was hard sought after (because we are just under the yearly cut-off for age) and we are happy we landed at such a wonderful place with caring and thoughtful teachers, staff and directors. We have at least 2 more “preschool” years before we enter into full-time “school” and there is a very good possibility we could be doing full-time schooling in France before we even land in Kindergarten in the US. It’s all a very exciting prospect, and we are very happy for our experience this year and look forward to continuing our friendships with wonderful people we have met this year and hope to meet more new friends in the coming years.
