After a wonderful weekend "en famille", we all attended classes at Saint Francis of Assise High School today, and ended the day with a welcome reception from Monsieur Potier, the Principal, and a group of teachers. Tomorrow, we will cross the Gois to L'Ile Noirmoutier- well known by the famous Tour de France!
