Our kids have seen a lot this year.
This summer, they looked down on this gorgeous view of the Dordogne river in the Périgord region of southwestern France. Even on a cloudy day, the scenery was beautiful.
They saw the countryside of Madagascar, too, which is beautiful in its own way.
They saw their share of cameleons, tortoises and lemurs.
They've gone for a ride on a taxi "pousse-pousse".
We haven't been able to continue the Bambina's swimming lessons here in Tananarive so instead, the she's been learning to ride a pony. The Bambino likes to just sit on the pony once in a while.
And they did a fair bit of swimming in the Indian Ocean (the Bambina did snorkeling and diving as well).
Our end of year treat: skiing in the Alps!
