The Past Weeksssss

So many weeks! Well, like three or four. The truth is I haven’t been home much. Hopefully I’ll have time to write more about the specific things going on because they did involve traveling and music, but here’s a summary:

  1. Grading and jurying the bac
  2. Visiting with my parents who came to town
  3. Going to a beach house in the Vendée for a week with them (and with J for part of it)
  4. Watching France’s win at the World Cup
  5. Galavanting off to Normandy with the band
  6. Going to one evening of a music festival

Now we are home for the coming week, and then running off to the Alps again for two weeks of family vacation with some other rock-climbing friends.
