French Exchange

Very tempting to take Rochelle up on the rerun this week. The boys go back to school tomorrow for the first time since early April, I got a new job last week and it feels like there’s a LOT to do.

But this story came into my head in the shower and I had to share it. You can check out my original story about this picture here too, and play spot the similarities: https://elmowrites.wordpress.com/2014/02/26/.

French Exchange

When I got home, Mum wanted to know all about the host family where I stayed.  They taught me so much – they always followed up with the English if they said something I couldn’t understand. I couldn’t tell her my favourite lesson though.

On the way to a super fancy restaurant for dinner, we were running late when a huge wagonload of straw pulled onto the road in front of us.

“Merde!” shouted the Dad.

The Mum looked at him and whispered “Les enfants!”

So he turns to me. I thought he was going to apologise, but he translates instead.
