After leaving Guam in June of 2005, we began a new journey towards the other side of the world. But first, a pit stop in Monterey, California to learn the language of love, le français. My husband and I went to school just like our kids from 8 am – 3 pm Monday through Friday for 6 months. The differences were my husband and I lived, breathed, and dreamed in French 24/7 for those 6 months, AND I still had all of my mommy/housewife duties too. Everyone tried to chip in and help, but overall, I was stressed out with wanting to be the perfect French student, mom, and wife.
Miraculoulsy, we all made it through those 6 months and packed up all our household goods to be shipped overseas to Paris, France.
