Learning French FINALLY... well, kinda!

Oh my goodness, I just needed to let everyone know that after 4 months of being in France I have accomplished something HUGE----yes, I have mastered how to tell time in France!!!!! I now know that 14:00 is 2pm and 17:00 is 5pm, etc.---am I French now or what? Okay, fine it's not that big of a deal for you maybe but if you knew how long it took me to tell time from a second hand clock you'd be impressed believe me!!!!

You guys are hilarious. My wife and I really enjoy reading your blog and check it at least once every couple of days. We moved to France about the same time you did (this summer), probably for the same reasons: mostly so we could expose our kids to the language and culture.

I see that you're originally from the DC area. 18 years ago I graduated from Walter Johnson High School in Rockville, MD.

Merry Christmas!

I still have trouble with the 24 hour clock - it just doesnt come naturally to me!

Happy Holidays to you both and your family :)

Hi there again: my wife and I (and our four kids) would love to meet you and your family. Perhaps that's because it's raining and we have two full weeks of kids following us around during the upcoming vacances...You can email us at 'daveashton@gmail.com'.
