Let's go fly a kite

The problem with not blogging for a few days is that when you do get the chance to blog you have a lot to say. My language session was good and we discussed misconceptions about the United States. He thought that there were Tornados and floods everywhere and violence on every street. It was good to get some of those cleared up. The bible study went well Thursday night. Only one came but we had a good lesson and good discussiong afterwards. Friday we did shopping, we had some guests over that evening, and Pastor and his wife from Scotland to fill in for the pastor in Carcassonne during his vacation. We had a really good visit with them. Saturday was a beautiful day. The high temperature was only 78 degrees. There was also a nice breeze blowing. Angie and Lilia went shopping. I stayed and worked on watering the plants and cleaning up around the yard and house. After lunch we went and flew a kite. It was a lot of fun. The wind was perfect and the kids caught on quick about how the keep it in the air and even manipulate it. Sunday we enjoyed the services at Carcassonne and stayed talking afterwards for a while. I was glad that we were able to catch the services at our sending church Sunday evening. We had missed the last couple of weeks. After the services were finished and we were finishing supper Andrew fell asleep at the dinner table (pictured). Monday we left the house at 7:30 and met soem friends to go watch the tour de France. We found a nice spot on at a corner were we could see them coming from a long way off. We really enjoy the Caravan, a line of supporters and sponsors of the race that follow the trail a couple of hours before the racers. They hand out a lot of free merchandise, including hats, candy, sausage, water, newspapers, laundry detergent, key rings, etc. Afterwards we stayed at our friends house and let the kids swim and have supper together. We got back home around midnight. Today I am working on the bible study lesson, finishing up a brochure for handing out about our bible study, and I hope to stop by the prefecture this evening to see about our visa paperwork. God bless, JASON
