We are very much enjoying our French Daughter. I am relearning some of the French I was taught in high school. My favorite new word is moustique, which means mosquito. Very important to know that word in Minnesota. We’ve become intensely conscious of our language usage and how much we mess with the English language. We’re making good use of our old French/English dictionary. It travels with us everywhere.
Our French Daughter has been sharing her culture with us and we’re finding far more similarities than differences. She showed us a few websites she visits, which I will now share with you.
News from her region: http://www.lavoixdunord.fr/
A magazine she likes: http://www.elle.fr/elle/
Fashion sites: http://www.promod.fr/tops/index.html
Needless to say, we’ve been very busy. I was on vacation for a few days, but returned to work today. I was quite lazy on vacation, so it’s hard to get back into the swing of things.
(We’re now listening to French Daughter’s favorite song, “I’m So Excited,” first done by the Pointer Sisters, now done by Le Tigre.)
