A week of museums

September 20 – 25, 2013

Our one night of babysitting turned into almost a week when my sister’s nanny had a death in the family and had to return to France. So, Chandler and I got to play nanny to the kids. It was really wonderful to spend so much time with my niece and nephew because they are incredibly funny, intelligent and sweet children. Our evenings were spent enjoying relaxing meals and conversation with Alyssa and Martin after the kids went to sleep.

Our days all had a similar pattern. Someone would drop Luc off at school then Chandler, Lea and I would take the tube to one of London’s free museums. We would spend a few hours wandering around the museum looking at stuff or chasing Lea before leaving to get back to school to pick up Luc. Generally, Chandler would hang out with Lea while I took Luc to his various after school activities. After tennis lessons or trampoline, we had some time at home to hang out until Alyssa and Martin returned.
