Here he is, notre chou-chou à nous tous (you have to understand French to get that phrase, which translates into something like "here's our very own little cabbage"), in his Breakers uniform late in 2006. The Santa Cruz County Breakers is his most recent youth soccer team.
Next, on the right, is his school photo from early spring 2008.
Charles was born at the end of our 1995 summer vacation in La Grée. He was born in the same clinic as Daphné eight years before, la Clinique des Augustines, managed by nuns whose spiritual and moral predecessors had helped allied airmen escape the Nazis during World War II.
Charlie cemented our family. Each of the older children took to him immediately, and he had a charmed childhood with all that love. Until the older reached adolescence, when of course from time to time things became more complicated!
On the right, on a sled in Tahoe in March 2007.
His number one kick is soccer (tee-hee!), where he does very well (you might want to check out his competitive under 10 soccer team in the fall 2005 season) and he likes most any other sport that he tries. In the photo below left, he's racing to cross the line first at the Happy Valley School annual sports day in 2006.
Not forgetting recreational biking, skiing and video games. He particularly likes to fool around. Below on the right, we find him in the dryer at his father's apartment in Irvine during Thanksgiving 2003. Note that he did not neglect to bring the fabric softener!
And this is the roof of La Samaritaine department store in Paris, August 2003. Needless to say, it is not supposed to be climbed on!
Unfortunately, he seems to have a thing for climbing on roofs!
