Thank you Bumpa

Rowan wouldn't say thank you on the phone, but was willing to say it after a brief "time out" session.

Just the three of us....

I think most of you are aware that Emily has spent the last few days in the US for a wedding. The kids and I have survived so far. The TV has been on a little more than normal, but not too much. We've visited all of our favorite spots.
  • Co op
  • Migros
  • Train store
  • Bakery
  • Lake
  • Stream
  • Market
  • Train station -Morges
  • Train station - Lausanne
I got Niamh to sleep in her "big girl" bed for one nap, but has since decided that the crib is the preferred location.

Next time (if there is a next time) I think I will take time off from work. Working and watching the kids makes for a very long day.

New Cheese: Reblochon

I tried Reblochon the other day and was very impressed. It is described as "A triumph of cheesemaking-its rind is like the velvet on a deer's antler, its flavor like filet mignon." That quote is from Cheese Primer, a book by Steven Jenkins. I am not sure if he as ever met a cheese that wasn't some type of triumph.

In other cheese news, here is a web site that might be of interest to cheese lovers.

Rowan for Hilary!

Hilary must be getting more face time on cnn international than the other candidates. She is the only one that Rowan can identify by sight. Since Rowan only watches cnn international for a few minutes in the morning, her face must be shown a lot for him to remember what she looks like.
