Roller Coaster Field Trip

I was lucky enough to chaperone for the 8th grader's trip to Thorpe Park.  It is an amusement park near London.
 
 
This is my kind of physics class!!

Ward Picnic

 We have a fabulous ward family here in England.  And today we got to celebrate a picnic with them celebrating the beginning of summer.
 It was nice to relax in the sun even if it wasn't too warm.



 Don't you hate it when you bite your tongue?



Crazy Caleb braved the river.  It was cold but too fun to stop him.

Maximus

We brought home Max today.  He is a Greater Swiss Mountain Dog.  He is eight weeks old and going to get big!

All of the children have fallen in love with him already.

Spring Break

 During Spring Break this year one of my besties, Deneka, came out for a visit.  We spent the first half of the week near home and the other half in London on a girl's trip.  We went to see some shows in the West End.  This one was Wicked.
 
 The Iconic Red Double Decker and its friendly driver.
 A castle up north.
 Audley End.  An amazing "house"!

 A beefeater guarding the Royal Jewels.
 Our lovely row house apartment for the trip.
 Westminster Cathedral
 Another show-Phantom of the Opera
 My little Royalty in Norwich Castle
 Castle Rising Castle
 Spiderman's premier in London
Tower Bridge from the ferry.  It was a wonderful week full of fun and adventure.  Thanks Deneka for sharing it with us!
