  7. The Gallery: Of course we went to The Louvre, we saw lots of paintings by French artists and colored them in using Art Masterpieces to color in. One of the paintings in the gallery was missing – a bit of a mystery… and we went on a quick scavenge to find it.

  9. The Race: On Bastille Day there is a waiters race through the streets of town… they usually carry glasses of champagne… it was so windy here we were today we could hardly carry ourselves, but races round the block were achieved!!! Of course there is another grand French Race known the world over… The Tour de France… and we had great fun chasing down the Yellow Jersey…

  11. The Perfume: The girls made their own French perfume… There was the gathering of pretty smelling plants and flowers and the trimming, we added some base oil (we had almond oil) and popped it into a jar. A dab of pretty oil before heading out will help a young lady smell pretty for hours!!!

  13. Listening: Well of course their are French Musicians and our favorite is Saent-Saens and his piece the Carnival of the Animals. We love this CD, where Leonard Bernstein explains everything as he goes along.

  14. And the se7en + 1th thing…

  15. Story Inspiration: Well no day would be complete without some story book inspiration…

  16. And our all time favorite French Flavor story: The Red Bslloon…

That’s us a fun day in France… until next time!!!
