In the mountains


We have had a lovely few days. We went for a drive yesterday up into the mountains about 15 minutes from our village. The road was incredible - narrow, windy and a looooonnngggg way down ! My heart was in my throat at times (I think Alex's was too just quietly) but so much more incredible than photos can do justice. I have attached a few pics to give you an idea but without the perspective it is a little bit lost.

We came across an area where people were jumping off the mountain and paragliding down. With Jacksons enthusiasm for all things that fly, he was in raptures ! Desperate to grow up so he can throw himself off the Alps too !!

We've been to the Mayors office this morning and completed the enrolment for the boys so they just have to turn up now on 5 September 0820. We managed really well and they were very helpful and friendly.

We have to go shopping for supplies for school but will wait until we meet up with a friend of Isabelle who speaks English. The list is quite long and of course all in French. The dictionary is only helping us so far !! Not sure what it all means. Most locals are away until the end of this week as it is the end of the holidays so we will aim for more exploring this week and some more settled time at home making new friends next week.
