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.


  1. Tres bien. L'enfant est chic dans la maillot blanc et la casque de velo. La casque de velo est tres grande pour l'enfant! (She should also master her stroller first!)

  2. Please make sure she knows that Floyd Landis is from Lancaster County, just a short bike ride from Mechanicsburg. and that Lancaster County is the home of outlet shopping, where she can spend lots of Dad's money when she gets older
