Part of raising a multilingual, multicultural family for us is learning to love where we live and transmitting that curiosity and love to our children. National holidays are the perfect time for a little family get-away, even if the weather is not at its best! Last Monday was Labor Day here in France and rather than stay cooped up inside because of the gloomy rain, we got all 4 kids plus a friend in the car and drove an hour towards the coast where we were able to see France’s shortest river, just over a kilometer long! From the natural spring to the crisp river full of fresh water and out into the vast ocean, Veules-les-Roses is filled with quaint homes and plush and pretty gardens. No wonder all the impressionist painters congregated in Normandy!
