My son and I are leaving our small town in southeastern United States to live for a year in a small town in southeastern France. It couldn't possibly be THAT different, right?

Fencing in Bourg-lès-Valence

    Jed participated in his second fencing tournament today in a little town above Valence about 45 minutes from here.  We zipped up the interstate and followed the viamichelin directions without any problems whatsoever.  We then spent a full day on our feet in a high school gym.
    Jed did not end up placing, but he made a lot of progress this week.  In his first tournament he lost every match.  Today he won two of eleven; ten of which were qualifying rounds.  This means that he got eliminated in his first "real" match, but that's ok.  He had a great time, and so did I.  I watched and photographed from the sidelines while talking to another fencing mom from Montélimar.

Who is that masked man?
