C'est la Vie...Settling back into Texas but dreaming of Corsica. Welcome to our blog, a place to keep and share memories of our life and journey to love and live like Christ. All through set backs and leaps forward. He had us acquiring a taste for goat cheese and strong espresso shots and made us swim through the paperwork of an Ethiopian Adoption. Now we are adjusting back to plateaus, BBQs and Rodeos.
They guys have enjoyed also preparing us common french meals....JP made us crepes one night. They eat them salty with ham or cheese or eggs.....And sweet with sugar and fruit. Louise made us rice stuffed peppers and then tabbouleh...i love the simplicity of most of there common daily meals.
Louise studing grammer. He also carries a small tablet and writes down words he hears but doesn't know and we make sentences out of them ;)
Brazos Bend State Park is just a 30min drive from our house and is one of my
My favorite places to go.....i love the spanish moss covered oak trees. There's miles of trails and lakes AND Alligators! They aren't too dangerous enless you provoke them but we brought the dog just in case! Unfortunately, the park guys said the big alligators tend to stay cool and not come too close during the hot days but we did see several smaller ones.
Learning about baby aligators.....its the temperature of the eggs that determines the sex!
I stay far away from any aligators....
The guys were more afraid of the harmless but large bananas spiders. Jean Philippe made me take a picture.
We showed the guys Texas State, the univetsity we both graduated from. And of course had to take them to Schlitterbaun, one of the first water parks...and the worlds best! Anytime girls would hear them talk....we would have to hear to whole 90 questions and 'please please talk in french'.....oh la la.
Theres a river that runs by the university that we used to go hang out at.
i just thought this salon was cute when we were walking around the San Marco square.
The original section of schlitterbahn uses river water in its rides.....so cold!
