My Week in Review

I am so terribly sorry that I have no posted recently! Everything has been a little crazy here!

On Wednesday I got to visit the city of Reims, which was destroyed in the war. Because if that everything is newer and it is not your typical French style. Everything was super expensive and it was not my favourite. Phillippe and I visited Danielle in the hospital and it was nice to see her.

On Friday I went for lunch at a Rotary members house and it was really nice to be out of school for the afternoon. It’s nice to talk to different Rotary members about home, school and things that I want to do while in France.

Saturday was free chateau day in France, so Phillippe and I visited two different chateau’s. They were beautiful. It’s hard to believe that people actually lived/live in them. Here are a few pictures from our adventure.

Today I woke up to the sound of rain which made me want to crawl back into bed. After getting ready, a Rotary member picked me up and we headed for a vineyard just outside of Sezanne. After about five minutes of cutting grapes, the excitement wore off, I was cold, wet and disappointed. I am glad that I had the opportunity to do grape cutting though, and it is something I will never forget! The president of our club, personally invited me to come back to help next year. I declined nicely.

On Thursday I am giving a speech to the district governor of Rotary, and on Saturday I am meeting with the exchange students in my district. I am super excited.

I will try to update you all more frequently,

love always,

  1. You go girl .Glad to see you are keeping busy, it makes time go by faster .I see you’re picking grapes I hope its to make a fine French wine , which you can send home to me ok .Everybody here misses you ,we are getting ready for our Christmas in Oct, then its off to sunny Florida. Have fun stay safe write often Love you.

  2. I totally agree with Heather, French wine there’s nothing quite like it. It is good to stay busy, it’s hard to believe that you’ve been there almost a month. Too bad it was raining today, but even with the rain it looks like your group picked a ton of grapes. It’s still seems a little weird that you’re not around but then when we see everything you’re doing, climbing rock walls, visiting castles, working in the vineyards, meeting some wonderful people, and through your blogs and pictures we can kinda be with you. It’s wonderful to be able to experience all your adventures with you, even though it is secondhand the way describe the details makes it exciting for us too ( I can almost taste the wine). Have a great week darling, keep in mind my daily prayer for you that you make wise decisions, good friends and create unforgettable memories. Keep the pictures and posts coming. Talk to you soon. Love you to bits ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’•

  3. Have you ever imagined picking grapes in France? I would not care if I was wet and cold. What an experience!!!! Time is just flying by so quickly. September will be done before you know it! Do the French celebrate Thanksgiving or Halloween? If not, maybe you can have your own little celebration….
    You take care and enjoy every minute!!!! Mrs. Belanger
