UpdateHello. I'm been thinking of all of you. I just wanted to let you know that the move went well and I'm getting along alright. Of course, there is so much to do. I wanted to continue the Paris blog for another week or so of content. However, my pictures really didn't make it. I seemed to have packed the picture software in the shipping freight, which takes 6 weeks to get here. I think I will still write some more when I get the picture software. So if you feel like it, check back in a couple of weeks.
I am also probably going to start a weekly blog (that daily stuff is so much work!) about life in the DC suburbs. I'm looking for a new domain. I'll keep you apprised.
That's again for you loyal readers. You were great passengers on my Paris blogging ride.

Remember the song on how "to keep them down on the farm after they see Paris?" I do not mean to compare DC to a farm but do wonder how you are going to readjust to American life after your years in Paris. I am certain you are going to miss Paris as much as Paris is going to miss you.
Aurevoir & bonne chance!

We moved back to the States in 2003 and while in Paris I did many of the same things as you: I belonged to Message Mother's Group, I had tea at the Embassy and "appreciated" the unusual art, I attended and later volunteered at Bloom - I wonder if we have ever met. It seems as if our paths must have crossed at some point.
Anyhow, welcome back, and prepare yourself for reverse culture shock. What you've read in the Bloom book is true - reassimilating is not as easy as one might think. Good luck in DC, and please, keep writing!

I'm looking forward to reading about your family's adjustment from life in Paris to life in DC. I can't believe that next month it will be a year since we moved to Paris! Thanks again for your advice!

Thanks for such a great blog. Hope the re-entry is relatively smooth. I can't imagine what the culture shock will be like.

I'm going to be going up to Washington myself come next May, so I really am looking forward to reading of your daily adventures in DC. You definitely won't want for readers!
I hope adjusting and getting acclimated is going well, and I hope to see the new blog soon!

For anyone who has lived abroad, this group and the Global Nomad / Third Culture Kid (TCK) idea is very relevant.
