Mother’s Day in France was Sunday, May 31st. Jack and Sophie spent some “secret” time at school and at church creating beautiful gifts for me. It was a beautiful and simple day spent in France. We attended church where the primary, which consists of Joseph, Emma, Jack and Sophie, sang a Mother’s Day song. It was interesting because they did not sing during the sacrament service. They were allowed to sing after the closing prayer. Everyone stayed in their seats while the children walked up and sang and then the four children passed out flowers to all the mother’s in the congregation. All 4 children were so cute, especially Jack and Sophie! After church we headed to the Sea for a day of “rest”. It was very enjoyable!
Sunday, June 21st, was Father’s Day here in France. In years past, Father’s Day has fallen on a different day in France, so we were happy America and France were on the same page this year! Again, Jack and Sophie created handcrafted items for Aaron. They were so excited to give him their gifts. We attended church and the 4 primary children sang a Father’s Day song after the closing prayer. Jack and Sophie did a great job! It was so fun hearing them singing in french!
Alexis made Aaron breakfast in bed: sweet potato pancakes, which he enjoyed!
