After we moved into the house and got temporary loaner furniture, Brian was ready to get out and do stuff. So he joined the Roadrunners (a Volksmarching group) to do a Volksmarch in France, followed by a trip to the Strasbourg Christmas market. I was not feeling the travel bug he had, so Bobby, Judah, and I stayed home for this one.
In case you didn't know, volksmarching is where you walk with a group of people on a specified, mapped out path in different places in Europe. The kids and Brian walked 5 kilometers which was the shorter option of the two paths for that day. Brian said they were super tough and didn't complain. Even Drew made it. However, it is widely agreed that the toughness level would be somewhat diminished if Mommy had been around. Something about Mommy makes little people softer. I don't get it. I'm not a coddler. It must be in the rule book of life or something.
Volksmarch ends and Christmas market in Strasbourg begins.
I got all good reports from everyone involved, but it was a long day and it took a few days for them to recover.
Judah, Bobby, and I had a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing day which is just what we needed. Judah's been having a hard time with the move, and he needed some one on one Mommy time anyway.
