Laurie tells me that a number of blog readers know our friends Mary and Gilles Germain, so she’s asked me to post some pictures of Mary and Gilles and their family. As the whole family was in Bois-le-Roi this last weekend, with the exception of son-in-law Fabien, here goes.
The family gathered in stages. First, grandson Christian and son-in-law Fabien arrived. After a couple days Fabien left for home in Singapore and Mary & Gilles took over full-time grandparent duties. Here’s Gilles reading with Christian (3-1/2 years old).
Christian’s mother, Anne, arrived a few days later, then William and Mathilde brought the newest grandchild – Claire, nine months. We visited Mathilde and Claire one morning when all the Germains were doing family business:
I think Eric was about three when the Germains lived in Boulevard Lane. It was then that we got to know them. Thirty-five years ago…yikes!
And a couple of pictures of the next generation. Christian and Claire getting to know each other:
