I just want to let you all know that we arrived safely in Saumur at 3:00pm (9:00am Eastern Standard Time). Most students slept a bit on the bus ride, then we stopped a for a hot lunch, and after we continued along with Le Roi Soleil musical on. It was especially great to see the castle of Saumur and the city as we crossed the Loire on our way to the school. When we got to the school, all the families were waiting for us! Within what seemed like only 5 minutes, all the families and students had found each other and soon headed home for the weekend.
The next few days should be exciting as the students rest a bit, have their first "French dinner" at home, and get to know their families. School starts on Monday, and the families should be accompanying the students so they can learn the way. Here we go!
Hope everything is going well in Indiana!
