Spring is on it's way....
Our second spring break is coming up next week! (for two weeks, of course!) This will be our fourth vacation since coming here. If we lived here for 12 months instead of 10 we'd have a lot more breaks coming up, like all of August off. I really wonder how Europeans deal with working in the United States. How do they live with only 2 weeks off (if that!) a year! Better yet, how are we going to deal with it? When Mr. French worked as a contractor (which was most of the last 7 years) he didn't get any paid vacation, so we would rarely take any more than one week off a year. I'm not sure why exactly. Maybe because we're terrible about planning vacations. We have two weeks off coming up and we haven't made any solid plans. We have three short trip ideas (in France) but no plans.
But, currently Mr. French is in the middle of final exams. The hardest tests were today and one tomorrow. The rest of the week are tests that he can't "cram" for, so it's a little more relaxed.
We saw these on our walk yesterday. I'll post more about it later.
