Dutch Children (sent from Paris) - May 2, 1954

Dutch Children card sent to Catherine & Roberta from Paris - May 2, 1954
[Sunday] 2 April 1954 [Should be May, not April]
These are some more Dutch boys and girls in the clothes they wear on Sundays.
We're starting our 4th day in Paris and Uncle Calvin keeps us busy all the time so we'll see everything.
We have a picnic every noon for we buy bread and cheese and ham and some fruit dessert and either eat it in our room or in a park.  Wish you girls were here to be with us.
There was a little girl 3 years old in front of us at church today.  It was her first time and she was so quiet. Love and lots of XXXXX, Daddy and Mommy


Is there some implication in the last sentence that perhaps Catherine and Roberta are not always quiet in church?  Or a reminder perhaps that we should try harder to be quiet!

HH adds: Do recall RUK getting the giggles in church and then the bench would move and then more giggles, but we survived. There is a saying in the guest bathroom in NV the effect that "children are great in our old age and they help you reach it sooner." It is the old story, we reap what we sow, and all of our children turned out fine.
