Last weekend, Kevin went to England to coach the Cross-Country team, so the girls and I did "girl stuff" while he was away. Friday night we ordered American-style pizza and watched The Little Mermaid. I saw it for the first time in the theater when I was thirteen. I loved it then, and it's still a favorite. On Saturday we tried to make cinnamon rolls (I have a recipe that tastes EXACTLY like Cinnabon...mmmm), but partway through we realized that we were out of flour. Oops. So, we put the recipe away and figured we'd try another time. Kevin was going to be getting home really late Saturday night, so we had one more evening with just girls. We made ooey-gooey grilled cheese for dinner, and then watched Newsies while we painted our nails. We also made chocolate milkshakes and ate Tostitos (one of my favorite pregnancy combinations...so good!). I know, it doesn't sound like the most nutritious weekend, but sometimes you just have to treat yourselves! We had a great time, but we were glad to welcome Kevin home and have some family time on Sunday. Kevin may have missed out on the fun here, but he got to hit the pub with the other coaches, so he had a good time too...and the team did really well.

Moving from America to France with two preteen girls, two dogs and a cat was an incredible adventure. After four years living just outside of Paris, the Family McLean headed back to the U.S. (minus the cat, but with a new baby boy). Four years later, we're leaving Raleigh, NC, and heading to Egypt (with another little boy in tow...)
