It's a dreary, rainy day here today...and after the rain, it's gonna get COLD! Again. Which means covering all the plants or bringing them in. Again. Enough, already...I'm ready for spring. Ah well, this is Florida...so really only about another month to go. :)
We found out a couple of days ago that Simon is coming to visit for two weeks next month. Simon is the French boy that Clay did the exchange with last summer and the boys are great friends. They email and talk via skype all the time and Simon even wants to come live with us for a year and go to school here. He has a two week holiday from school and his parents said he could come - we of course, are thrilled to see him again. He will go to school with Clay when he is able to (not sure about the school's policy on that!) or do stuff with Tim and I. It makes me happy that he wants to spend time with us....I was feeling a little bit guilty that the Thomas' took Clay skiing in the Alps, to the last leg of the Tour de France, etc.....and we took their kids to Whitey's Fish Camp for gator tail...Yee Haw! Oh well....they must have enjoyed the gator tail! :) Anyway, we are excited to see him on February 6th - and hoping he will cook for us again. When he was here over the summer he made us crepes - and taught us all how to make them too. Crepes with Nutella. Yum Yum. I am also hoping that he can work with Clay on his French and maybe Clay can get that French grade up!
