World Cup title goes to Italy

Today has been great! I slept until 11:00 this morning, which means I got 9 hours of sleep. Considering that I haven't gotten more than 4 hours any night this week, it felt really good. I missed brunch, but I didn't care at that point. After getting ready I hung out with people in the courtyard of our dorm for a couple of hours. Then we had lunch at a local restaurant. It was nice not to have cafeteria food for a change. Then a big group of us went to Bagersee, which is a park with a lake that has a sand beach around part of it. We swam, threw the frisbee, laid out, and had ice cream. It was very relaxing and a nice change of pace.

We watched the World Cup game from the dorm. Italy won, which is who most people were wanting to win. I think it's funny since we're in France. I don't follow soccer though, so they may have their reasons.

Tomorrow we're back into the full swing of things. I'm hoping to get more sleep this week, but I guess we'll see.

What fun you are having! Sounds like you are putting your creative skills and other talents to work as well as your smart mind! I'm so proud of you...Now I can tell people my daughter is an internationally famous rocket scientist on an important public relations mission to France. (Like I never had reasons to brag on you before!) Congratulations for such a great outcome for your hard work. I loved hearing about the relaxing time, too! VBS kicked off today and was such fun. Communicating with 3- to 5-year-olds feels a little foreign to me! Love being able to hear from you each day...thanks for the time you are giving to all of us who miss you. PFY! Love, MOM
