I have been waiting to use that blog title for a long time. And now it is true, times six to be exact. We spent a week in Paris this August and were able to mix a little business with pleasure. The twins needed to be registered at the U.S. Embassy and apply for passports, social security cards, and complete the birth report abroad. And let me just say, I don’t think I have ever had to fill out so many forms, compile so many documents, and organize so many papers in my life. I’m not really sure how it all happened, but it did, and the twins are now French born American citizens in possession of American passports too!
While in Paris we were also able to see some of the sights with the girls. We climbed Montmartre on foot to reach Sacre Coeur, at Notre Dame we walked the famous Left Bank and feed the birds; we saw the Eiffel Tower (from a distance) and even watch some of the London Olympics. (N.B. The Women’s gymnastics final is not to be recommended as a pre-bedtime activity for small children.) Lovely Paris trip overall.
