Une photo de moi!!
For the first time in my life I am sorta kinda a model!! Oui, that's little old moi in the back row grinning from oreille à oreille because I am standing on the balcony of the Opéra Garnier in Paris and the sun is shining on a beautiful January day. Yesterday I got an email from ACIS, the travel company who has put together a fabulous trip for my 14 eighth grade angels, our art teacher (known previously in this blog as the Arles Lucy), and me. When I opened the email, I didn't really even look at the photo-- you know the drill, you don't look because you don't think you know who anyone is anyway-- just read the email. Then right before I closed the email, I glanced back at the top of the page and gave a little shout (while proctoring the after school study hall, no less) "That's me!! I am famous!" Normally, I hate photos of me. I usually look confused or my mouth is open (between eating and talking, two of my favorite activities, it is usually open). This one I like, though. What's not to like about standing in the Paris sunshine?
And in exactly three weeks, we will be on our way to France.
Bon appétit, Paris!
