Carl is a semi retired physician and Louise is a stay home mom nurse. We have three grown children Abby 23 yrs, Carl and Phil 20 yrs (twins) . Our children attended the Lycee Francais in San Francisco and are bi-lingual. We have made previous home exchanges to Aix en Provence and Ile d'Oleron, France , as well as Monopoli, Italy. We lived in Tours, France for the school year 2002-2003 for our children to experience a school year abroad. Are three children are all away at college and/or medical school. We are now looking forward to making house exchanges as "empty nesters". There is a possibility that my mother or sister may join us on an exchange.
