La Rentrée! (sounds like rontray)

The return! This is quite the event in France! You see and hear about it everywhere. It is more than just Back to School specials. It marks everyone's return to life in a routine...the true end of summer and vacations and freedom. The beach is deserted...the highways have cleared out...the restaurants are quiet. It was a fun day both culturally and to meet friends. Celia and Nathan will blog tomorrow (Friday) about their experiences at school. Bonne Rentrée to all of you as well!
