Moving to Paris, France?

I'm an American, born and bread in the south (Alabama to be exact). I'm 39 and married with 2 kids. My husband got a great job offer over in France. I have never been outside the U.S let alone to France. We move to Paris in 4 months time. We still have yet to find an apartment and all that! But we are working on getting our house ready for sale. (+ yes, this is most likely a perminant move). Guess I want to know .. 1. Essential things I should know .. I am starting to study French now, but as I said I'm 39 with two young children (ages 12, and 9) .. Don't think I'll be that good. My children have some audio sets they listen to now in French, but they don't seem interested : / 2. How are Americans treated in Paris in general? 3. Where should we be looking at living? Whats the general cost? We'll be making about 80,000$ a year on average. 4. French food == How to get used to it? How to get the kids to eat it? Thanks! As far as the kids schooling goes, the first year anyways we're homeschooling. So how do we get them to make some friends in France?
