reflection:Today we went to an island called mont st. michel. We are now in normandy fance. We are staying at a small inn. I love the inn. It is fun to explore. The Inn has 2 ducks, 10 cats, 1 dog, 2 donkeys and 6 goats. They had a lama but it is on vaction right now. I like this one cat named Moe ( he only has one eye).

We saw alot of stuff wile we were on the boat including: The Louv, The effiel tower and lots more. Other boats were also out for a ride or carring stuff. It was a rained a little but just lightly. Then we went to a kichen store with french copper pots. Evie was playing chef. After that we ate a nice lunch and took the metro to sacre coer. Later when it was dark we went up the effiel tower.

reflection: Just got off of a really long and annoying flight. I used to have terrible jet leg but now I'm doing just fine. The exciting thing is......
I'M IN PARIS! We have a beatifull little apartment in Paris. We had fun going along the streets looking at all these difforent shops and cafes and restraunts. We had dinner in a little cafe. We sat inside because outside seating was taken. The weird thing was when my mom let my brother have as much candy as we wanted to and at the restraunt He had a ice cream and chocolate crapes. I had a brown sugar one. I'm having lots of fun for my first day but yet I have not seen the whole effile tower. there are lots of people speaking french here. I am picking up a few words. My dad is coming tommorw.
