We are not going to live in Geneva, but rather in a beautiful two bedroom flat outside of the city in a little French town. I have always wanted to live in France for the spring, but never really thought that dream would come true. Although, in my dream it was exploring museums, visiting cafes, and speaking French with the locals... but with a toddler, there will be a bit more juggling involved. Luckily, my little guy is perhaps the most easy-going kid I've encountered. We did a lot of traveling his first year and he knows the drill. He has quite the STATS for being under 2.
-27 different plane rides
-9 different states
-5 different countries
(We were basically gone a week out of every month his first year... daddy was very busy with school and I wanted to see family.)
We get to stay for 3 months and hopefully will get to visit Munich, Naples, and London... but we'll see how adventurous we become.
I have done my best to prepare for this adventure. We bought the French Rosetta Stone in December and have been studying. I also decided to nerd out and read a book called "La Belle France: A Short History" about the history of France. Short it is not, but actually it is a fun read. I still have a ways to go... Napoleon just took over for the first time.
We are down to the final preparations. My to-do list pages are looking beautiful and crossed off. One more day before we leave for Nashville to drop off our dog with my parents, then in one week from today we leave for Paris! One week left!
