Fontenay Abbey

 We were very lucky to be near Fontenay Abbey, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  We first visited it in September but went several times, including taking some visitors.

First Day of School 1988

So we all went to school this year and were put into the local school system.  My brother and I went to the local school just a few minutes away.  This meant we came home for lunch.  My sister went off to Lycee and I only have a vague idea of where it was even located.  

Here are my brother and I in the traditional first day of school photo.  The door that I am in front of was the elevator.  We were on the top floor and there was no "door" inside the elevator so that you could touch the doors and walls as you went up.  Below that is some of the different documentation that we had for school. At the bottom was the menu for school meals that was published in the newspaper.  I am sure I kept it as an indication of how different meals and food were in France to Canada.
