Well, summer has officially arrived on the Cote d'Azur . . . and it's really hot! Everyone kept telling me that it would happen "d'un coup" (suddenly), and they were right! Wednesday was the first nice day we've seen in a long time, and we celebrated by going to the beach (Plage du Midi).

But since then, I've had tons of work to do, so now while everyone is at the beach or in the pool, I am busy packing the bags, getting rid of the food, throwing away the broken toys and deciding which school items are worth keeping for souvenirs.

The kids were lucky enough to go swimming today, and I am lucky enough to have half of them sleeping over a friend's house so I can finish organizing the luggage.

Tonight we ate takeout from Al Charq, my favorite food here. If you are ever near Cannes (or Paris), you MUST eat there. Dave goes home on Monday . . . wow. More tomorrow.

Just wanted you to know I am also going through all the school items and figuring out what toys to pack. I'm so glad you like Lebanese food. That is the absolute best part of moving to Jordan - I love the food!

Best of luck! I'll still be following you as you transition back and we transition abroad. 6 weeks left here.

Packing, so much fun. It always seems like an impossible chore to get the things you somehow brought in your suitcases... to fit back in your suitcases. And I'm sure you have some extras.

Good luck!

See you in the fall. In Paris now, but glad to hear the weather is good at 'home'.

Best wishes for smooth travel back to the States. Have been reading since A Little Sussy was over to take photos. You have such a lovely family!

Does this mean you are travelling alone with the kids?

I am glad that you are coming home soon. You have been missed greatly. It is over 110 here already so you might not want to come home.
