You have a fabulous family and life. I have four kids and we left the US for Mexico 4.5 years ago. We live in the Wild West in the High Sierra Madres. My 13 son is now a cowboy and my other kids are exploring their entrepreneurial artisitic side. It has been hard and rewarding and made us a very outlandish family!
Thanks for sharing. Ashley

I only wish I had read of your time there before my honeymoon trip to Paris (back in 2007) – so much to learn! I feel like I have to plan another trip. Good luck with your move and I look forward to hearing about Oakland.

Even your first six months were exciting, I’m sure the rest of the time was just as wonderful. Can’t wait to hear about it all!

We’re your beds comfortable? Are you looking forward to sleeping in beds with box springs?!

What an adventure. I live in Marin, just across the Bay from Oakland. May your adventures continue in NorCal!

It’s inspiring. Good luck with the move home – I have lived abroad twice and those final nights both times I thought my heart would break in two saying goodbye! (dramatic much?!) It kind of did – but it simply means you have lived everything and it has changed you forever in the best way possible! Much love to you and your family.

They have grown and blossomed beautifully.

What an adventure…full of some many adventures! Jealous? Yes, a little because I would love to live abroad with my family like this but overall just so glad I could come along for the ride. Thanks and here’s to more stateside adventures!

I look forward to your future recaps, and best wishes on the next part of your journey in Oakland :)

Can someone please explain to my husband that the birth of our daughter does not mean we can never travel again?

What stands out the most to me, overall, is how much your kids grew up. Looking at them at the beginning of your journey and today.. So mature, culturally enriched. You gave them the best and you will treasure this part of your life forever. Can’t wait for your next adventure!

I don’t think you ever need to worry that you didn’t make the most of your time in France. Good luck with your final preparations and goodbyes!

How much dang stuff you did! This flies in the face of all the naysayers who claim you can’t travel/have fun/etc with kids. I mean, 6 kids! Doing all that! You guys are my heroes. I’m so inspired. I’m looking forward to the rest of the recaps. I never tire of your posts on France. :)

Cannot wait to hear about the other 2 years, it is so fun to look back at old posts!
