Look who dropped in today! Ellie, Phoebe, Susan, and Marc are here! After getting them settled in to the apartment, we went to the grocery store, took a stroll through downtown Montélimar, had a drink in a café, and then had a kebab at the kebab restaurant across from the park. Although, extremely jet-lagged, the whole family soldiered through then collapsed before 8:30 when we returned to the apartment.
Their arrival was just what I needed after a rough day at work that concluded with me leaving in tears. I don't think that any students saw, but at least three colleagues did. Oh well, there goes that dignity that I have worked so hard to preserve! Tomorrow is another day. Who can cry when they have adorable house guests like these?
