...and, They're Off!


Our French exchange has come to an end. Apparently, the news media served its purpose and brought appropriate attention to the stranded group. Government pressure and airline assistance sent 7 of the students and their principal home yesterday, and the remaining students (including Zoe) and their teacher are now enroute to the airport.

It has been a wonderful experience for all of us, and I hope that Zoe (and her family) will come back and visit us again!

May they all have a nice, safe trip home. I bet the parents cannot wait to hug them. It was truly lovely to read your adventures with them and I told Barry I bet you are ready to put your feet up, and I don't mean for another pedicure!

We had a safe trip back home and now everybody is at school, very busy with the preparation of exams and the end of the school year.
This trip will remain a wonderful memory for all of us thanks to the hospitality and warm welcome of all the American families. I enjoy reading your blog, Mrs G and I hope you are fine. I also enjoyed the conversations we had when you were with us. MERCI MERCI encore, je vous enverrai encore des nouvelles à partir de mon adresse mèl personnelle mais je n'ai pas beaucoup de temps en ce moment....

Mme. Raige, how lovely to hear from you! I am thankful that you are safely at home, and I also enjoyed our conversations when you were here. I look forward to receiving news from you when you have more time; I think you have my email address through the college. Merci!
