Well, she's off! Lauren left on New Year's Day for a semester abroad in Grenoble, France. Her adventure began with an extra day in San Francisco as her flight out of here was delayed because of fog and she missed her flight to Europe. Alas, she is there now, safe and sound and she met her host family today.
Lauren is keeping a travel journal which you can find here. She's posted some photos of Grenoble already.
We miss her already but are so excited that she's taken advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Below is a photo with her brother Ryan as she was heading to the airport on Thursday.
I'm planning to visit her in the spring so I need to start boning up on my French!
