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?

Kathy and Hayley

Visitor month begins!  Jed cleaned our apartment for days to get ready for Kathy and Hayley to visit.  He is as excited as I am.

Here they come!

We were fortunate to have two days off of school while the girls were here.  On Tuesday, we just showed them around Montélimar, but on Wednesday we drove them to the Pont du Gard about an hour from here.

It was their first warm, sunny day in France.

Jed and I had already been here once before, but it's fun to show it to someone new.  Those Romans were pretty impressive!

On Thursday, Kathy and Hayley took the train to Avignon for the day since Jed and I had school so we didn't see much of them, but on Friday afternoon we drove up to Poët Laval, which is listed on the website "The One Hundred Most Beautiful Villages in France."  It took us a while to figure out how in the world to get into the center.  We thought that we were only going to be able to see it from this distance. 

We finally found a closer parking space so that we did not have to climb steep cobblestone streets like this the entire time.

It looks like this house has a kids' entrance. 

The place at the bottom is for sale, if you're interested.

There are pretty views all over town.

And pretty people posing in front of the views!

Not far from this spot, we had a drink on the terasse of what appears to be the only restaurant in the Vieux Village.  

All good things must come to an end.  On Saturday morning, we took Kathy and Hayley to the train station where they took a bus to Valence to catch their TGV to the airport in Paris.
