  1. Love this! Love the oldest’s last comment about you being the heart and Paul being the brain! And I may be a teensy bit jealous about your visit to the Eiffel Tower!!! The twins did a unit on the Eiffel Tower last spring, and they LOVED it! I would love for them to be able to see it in person! Instead I’ll show them your picture.
