Our second week of vacation. We where near Paris (France). We visited a middle aged town (Provins) which was great, but not so great was that our navigation system was stolen from our car there (very strange: they left the children's DVD system in the car). There was no damage to our car, we can't understand how they did it (it's not possible to open the car door through the handle inside when it's locked, and they also left the thing that is attaching the system to the front window which makes no sense). Well, we didn't let this spoil our vacation. We went to Paris for a day, showed the kids the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Arc de Triomphe, Sacre-Coeur, and sat on the treps of Montmartre. We also had dinner in a Cambodian restaurant, which was great for Mean. And the last three days of our holiday where spent in Disneyland Paris! We had a great time, allthough our feet where mess each evening. On sunday we went home at around half past two, and arrived at nine thirty in our home. We had a great time!
Holiday week! Fun in the sun in southern France. We had a very nice time. We visited the mediterranean sea two times, had a blast in the pool on the campsite. On saturday we left for another week of holiday near Paris. The kids loved to play there with other Dutch kids.

Okay, here's last week!
6 july: my birthday! We had some bad weather on tuesday. On wednesday my office celebrated the launching of a service with ice-cream for all employees. Thursday: our little girl is very tired this week of the kids play week in Delfzijl. On friday we left for France. The photo is of the pool at the Novotel in Beaune, France. When we left saturday morning early at before 7, we didn't know we would be in trouble just an hour later. At 8 we got a flat tire at the autoroute, and we lost 2 hours. After that it was horrible. 160 km of traffic. We detoured, and detoured, and finally arrived at 9.30 PM at our destination, only 550 km away from Beaune. On sunday we rested and played in the pool at our holiday parc!

This week we had really great weather. No fun to go to work every day! The kids had a great last week at school. On Thursday they celebrated the farewell of two of the teachers, and on Friday, the last day, the parent council took all the kids at school (all 25) to a nice park with lots of fun to do for them. And did I tell you the weather was so great? I went along on Friday, and it was much fun. I took almost 500 photos!
The photo of Monday is of Mean working on the Wii FIT for the first time. She loved it! I have trained on it myself three times the past week, and I really enjoy the steps exercises. And the balance stuff is great to do too!
The photo of Tuesday is of one of our linden trees. They are blooming right now. On Wednesday I had a performance of my singing class. It was the last time in this building, as it will be torn down. There were 11 songs performed, I did “Unexpected Song” from Song and Dance, a musical.
Thursday was really warm. The kids enjoyed the pool in our garden after they returned from school.
The Friday photo is of Mean. It was really hot in the children’s park, and she loved to cool down in the water. I really love this photo! On Saturday we put up the tent the children received from my mother as a gift, and they slept in it during the night. We had our first BBQ of the season too! Sunday was the greatest day. The weather was really nice, sunny all day, almost no wind, wonderful. I already packed some stuff for our holiday (we leave on Friday) and we BBQ’d again. Super!
