Salut nos amis ! Yesterday was la Journée Internationale (International Day)! In the morning, we had three different villages come to our site to share a picnic style lunch; we hosted the Italian village, Lago del Bosco, the Spanish Cass Lake village, El Lago del Bosque, and the Russian village, Lesnoe Ozero. We loved getting to learn new words and cultural habits! Before, during, and after our picnic lunch, we also danced and sang songs...

Salut! Yesterday our theme of the day was crise de l'euro (the Euro crisis). One of the sketchs was about a man who went to the bank to take out money, and found out he didn't have as much money as he thought.

Each session we open our Lac du Bois Pizzeria for cabin night. Each cabin decides what kind of pizzas they want for dinner, the villagers call in their orders, and the leadership staff make the pizzas and deliver them directly to the porch of each cabin. It’s a lot of fun! But of course, we have to advertise the pizzeria to make sure we get a lot of business. This time, our advertisement came in the form of a video modeled after the “Modern Family” TV show. The video is about a famille recomposée - a Franco-Russian mom and a French dad who each have their own children and are trying to get these stepsisters to make a pizza. The crazy family isn’t quite able to actually make a pizza and instead they just end up goofing around with the ingredients. But now we know all the ingredients that go into a French pizza!
