A beautiful week in November.

I finally got a chance to visit the boys school for Parent/Teacher conferences.  It was fun to see their classes and what they were up to.  Here is Bryce's class, a whopping 14 kids.  ;)  

Here is a picture of all the kids in Bryce's class the first week of school on a dress up afternoon.

First day of winter uniforms.  Its like school at Hogwarts.  

Ryan lost another tooth and now looks like a little Jack-O-Lantern.

To make sure Nanie got a chance to see some of the amazing history in Athens, we did a walking tour.  Toddler on back and ready to go.

Amazing artifacts, jars for holding wine/food, and this is just at the subway.

 Parliament House.
 We were able to see the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Solider.  
 The beautiful neoclassical Zappeion Hall.
 The National Gardens.
 Temple of Zeus, it was built in 550 BC, it was originally 104 columns.  Sadly only 15 are still standing.  Regardless, its still an amazing site.

 Off to climb up the Acropolis.  Its actually just the rocky outcrop above the city. All the buildings are in different stages of repair and renovation.
 This amazing 2,000 year old stone theater still hosts concerts all summer long.

 The views from the top near the Parthenon overlooking the city is breathtaking.  Being able to see all the way to the sea is even more amazing.

Beautiful November day with my girl and Nanie!

We took Nanie to the delicious Cap Cap Cake with friends.  This is Charlie's sweet friend Gracie.  The girls loved the hot chocolate that was as big as their heads.  ;)

Sean and I had plans at the Marine Corp Ball so thankfully Nanie offered to go with the kids to their school's annual Harvest Party.  Its like of like Halloween and a fall party combined.  

Sean and I got all Ball ready.  

Here are the guys in Sean's office all dressed up.

The lovely spouses of Sean's office.
Some of my sweet friends here.

Charlotte got really excited that I had my nails done for the Ball, so I gave her, her first mani and pedi.

Can you tell she loves it?  

Here she is now pretending to be a silly kitty.

Here is Nanie's last night in Athens.  We went out to a South African restaurant that is known for its beef and steak dishes.  Greeks generally don't eat much beef so finding good steaks is hard.  This place was amazing! 

Of course after dinner we had to stop for ice cream!

We sure miss Nanie.......come back soon!
