Le Tour (The Tour)

It's a good thing that Steph is a French Teacher. With her help, we were able to understand all of the terminology used during the 93rd Tour de France (Tour of France). This morning, American Floyd Landis* won, and Evy was so excited that she put on her casque de vélo (bicycle helmet).

Le Tour

Those who know cycling will also notice that she is wearing the maillot blanc (white jersey), which is worn by the best young rider in the race. And even the words on it are en français (in French). They read - un, deux, trois (yellow chicken, purple chicken, aqua chicken).

In other European sporting news, another American, Tiger Woods, just won the British Open (British Open). I guess we'd better hide the golf clubs...

* Update 7.31.06 - In light of recent events, Evelyn would like to state that she does not condone the use of any performance enhancing formula.

Chatty Evy

Evelyn turned four months old last week, and other than the four shots at the doctor's office, she seems pretty happy about it.

Lately, she has been talking nonstop. We're not sure what she is chatting about or in what language she is speaking, but Evy is very animated. Have a listen:

Huh? What did she say?

New Trick

Getting her picture taken (finally) wasn't the only thing that Evelyn did yesterday. She also discovered something new that she can do.
