we have a small group. a group of ten students, one director, his lovely wife, and their two daughters. it is small, and it is eclectic, and i love it. i have come to love all the fabulous people that make this program so much fun to be a part of. almost everyday i think to myself about how each of us is so different and how all our little quirky personalities add so much to this experience. i don't know what my time here in france would be if one person were missing! we've become quite the little team, and i love it. but i have to send a little shout out to the girls i do everything with. these four have become so dear to me and i just have come to love each so much. i thought about writing a little description for each one so everyone would understand why it is i love 'em all, but i decided to go short and sweet instead. so here you have it. a little series.
