Stella our middle granddaughter
celebrated her First Communion in the
12th century Cathédrale Saint-Étienne de Sens.
It was a beautiful ceremony full of old french traditions.
Over the two years since our last visit
Sens Cathedral has had a major restoration.
The exterior of the building has been cleaned
and now highlights the magnificent
Parisian limestone used in construction
during the 12th century.
Following the communion ceremony
we had an enjoyable family lunch at
an old restaurant on the Vanne river.
The girls end of year ballet spectacular
took place in the performing arts theatre.
The two older girls have been learning ballet at the
Conservatoire de Sens for four years,
Jessie 3½ years will start when she turns 4 in January!
As you can see she already has her outfit and ballet slippers!
These were some of the highlights from our France visit!
I'm now back on track, it has taken me a while
to get motivated since arriving home.
I always find it hard leaving my daughter and her family,
the separation leaves a huge hole in my heart....
