We spent all day yesterday at home getting adjusted. Maggie and Noah were both feeling a little under the weather from all the travel, but feel much better today. The villa is fantastic!! Here is a link to the advertisement for the villa, but we'll be posting more pictures as we go.
Words can't describe the surrounding scenery. It looks like a postcard for Tuscany on every side and the sunsets are amazing!!
The kids are really enjoying the pool in the back yard and chasing after the local lizards. This morning, Bridget and I went to the local market in San Casciano that takes place on Monday mornings. It's more like a flea market than a produce market - selling everything from underwear to dress shirts, toiletries to leather purses. We were able to pick up some fresh fish and veggies, but most importantly - enjoy the local culture.
We made another trip to the grocery store to pick up a few things we missed the other day. I am amazed at how small everything is in Italy. It doesn't exactly make it easy for a family of our stuture to go shopping. I wasn't expecting to go down the road to Costco (my favorite store) and buy things in bulk, but come on - can I just buy a quart of milk? I'm not even asking for a gallon.....just a quart!! If we 'super-size' everything in America, then they 'under-size' everything over here!
