April 2018

It's funny how looking back on a month at a time can be so revealing.  April was a BIG DEAL.  I had kind of forgotten.  Walk with me as I remember... 

Daphné won the Piston Cup!  Then she and Papa pretended to be Eskimos.

We got the keys to our new home!!!  CRAZY!!!

We have the most amazing co-signers, without whom we would not be able to rent this place.

Aunt Becky comes down from Grenoble to help us pack =)!  Thanks Becky!

I get to take a picture with a real-live lioness.  She was a pretty stinkin' cute one if you ask me.

In the midst of boxes and more boxes and last days at the day care, we squeeze in a few trips to the sea.

And a trip or two to the park... AND Papi found us!!! =)

We enjoy the springtime sea salt.

Daphné says goodbye to her old bedroom.  [I actually got a bit teary when I found this photo.]

Bye bye Gambetta.  We will always love you.  You were our newlywed nest.  We brought our two babies home to you.  You welcomed our friends and our families.  Your (many) quirks kept us on our toes.  You served us well for 7 1/2 years.  Thank you!

Love Linz
 And here is our first family photo in our new home!

March 2018

Well, hello there!  If you've been following me recently, you know that I decided to do a 10-photo recap of the months of 2018.  I've done January and February, so now... MARCH 2018!

We drive up to Paris to me our new nephew and see his mama and papa's new houseboat!

Tonio runs a 1/2 marathon in Paris with his brother and good buddy Edgar (pictured).

Birthday party for Daphné's friend, Astor (in green).

Visit from Tata Cricri!

God provides a new home for us to rent!!!  Years of prayer answered!  Such a blessing.

I get to go to a women's retreat in the mountains!  Super refreshing in so many ways.

We start packing!  Can't forget the kids =)  Hehe!

Django gets a high chair and his first taste of spinach.

Our beautiful Daphné is becoming such a sweet little girl with some pretty great expressions.

The siblings are becoming friends!  It is so wonderful to see their little friendship forming already.

Love Linz
