Today our youngest daughter goes to the French Consulate in San Francisco to obtain her long-stay visa to study in France for her junior year of high school. She is so excited.
We have collected her birth certificate, vaccine records, insurance, plane and school documents. She even has an outfit picked out that says “Je t’aime” on the shirt.
I’m so happy for her. I know this is the beginning of a wonderful, life-altering journey.
I wish her “bon voyage” and “adieu.”
