Sally remembers French school

Monday we went out to Bures to visit Kate and Terry, who are just about to leave for Terry’s new job in Zurich. It was raining, surprise surprise. We went to look at Sally’s elementary school, eliciting this reaction. Sally said that she was glad we had visited, because she had been thinking she would have liked to spend another year in Bures, but this reminded her of all the reasons why not, and the stroll around the Ormaille reminded her how little there was to do there! The old tree house is gone and the path to the woods overgrown. Perhaps the time when the Ormaille was full of families is gone. Kate and Terry were lovely as usual, and we saw Christiane as well.
