Along the French Riviera

Since we announced our travels, Grandma has been looking forward to taking Boy to France. She and Grandpa met us in Nice for a few days of beach and sun before we all head to Paris.

We strolled through the flower market and along the Promanade de Anglais, where Boy pointed out all the ice cream vendors, assuming, rightly, that grandparents would say “yes,” where parents say “no.”

The next day, a train took us a few minutes along the coast to Monaco. We enjoyed ogling the fancy yachts, and found more ice cream vendors. Boy was most impressed that Monaco counted as a new country, and spent his math time working out how long it would take a fast car to get from one side of the country to another.

Our studies this week have focused on our French language lessons, but we worked in a bit of French history and social studies as well.

Here are our books:
