Space Museum Weekend Visit
Break officially started after school on February 3rd. So the next day, we went to the Space Museum to use our Annual Pass that Liz and Mike got us for Christmas last year one last time. Here is Will, resting in an egg chair, hopefully learning something.

And Alex, he spent the most time in the egg chair. We had been running around doing other activities prior to this. I think the boys were getting tired.

Just a couple of feet down from the egg chairs was this display. Because they love to talk about Trump here in France. And because he is totally about space and needs to be in a French space museum. Yup.
On Monday, I was trying to meet up with someone at Starbucks. She got overbooked and wasn't able to make it. That didn't stop the kids and I from going to Starbucks though. The Toulousian Starbucks is next door to the movie theater. So we stopped by to see what was playing. Then, the weirdest thing happened! Will and Alex asked to go to a movie! And, they knew that there aren't many movies shown here in the original language. They asked to go to a French movie! Well, not really French. It was called "Tout en Scene." This is French for "Sing." Not translated literally. We all know French for "to sing" is "chanter." The movie title literally means "All on Stage." I think.
Will's reason for going to see the movie was that he saw a preview on you tube that demonstrated that the songs were not translated into French, that they were still in English. This meant that he would be able to follow the story. So, we went to the movie. They seemed to enjoy it and most of it was understandable to me, even the parts that were not English songs.

The only problem with French movie theaters, and probably European movie theaters, in general, is that they don't have butter to add to the popcorn. You can get salty popcorn or sweet popcorn, but there is no liquidy buttery goodness to make you completely greasy while you enjoy your movie.
Stay at Home Tuesday
After a busy long weekend, we took a break. By downloading The Legend of Zelda NES to the Wii U. Alex enjoyed playing it. My brain remembered useless facts from 20 years ago back when Kyle played Legend of Zelda on an actual NES.
Ice Skating Wednesday
You know how they say kids have to try something, whether it is food or an activity, like 7 times before they actually like it. Well, this must be Will's 7th time going ice skating.
