London: Days 6 and 7

Thursday was starting to look bleak for our daughter when I spoke to her last night. They were supposed to use their free time to go and see the London Eye, but the bus never came to pick them up. Not sure what they did that evening (she didn’t say much because she was exhausted last […]

London: Days Four and Five

Our daughter has been super busy these past few days. She is taking classes you know while she’s in London! On Tuesday she spent the day at the University of Oxford (the oldest university in the English-speaking world) where she got to sit in on a lecture with Alister McGrath, author of C.S. Lewis – A Life, […]

London: Day Three

L had another full day and she tells us that she had a boatload of homework to do tonight! They had a lecture from the President of the University at Regent’s University, followed by some group work in the afternoon before heading over to Westminster Abbey (founded in 960) for Evensong. They had dinner at the Archduke before returning to […]

London: Day Two

L had another full day. She didn’t get a chance to call us today, but we texted and she was able to upload a few pics from her morning bike tour. Hopefully we’ll see more pics later tomorrow. Her friend did upload a few pictures that had L in them to the group page they created for […]

Day One: Her Perspective

D and I had a nice chat with L today (we even FaceTimed!!!). She was exhausted, but she had a great time today. The flight was about 8 hours long (they flew awfully close to Greenland!), unfortunately she was a bit crammed in her seat and only managed to sleep about 3 and a half hours. Hopefully […]

London: Travel Day

As I type this our daughter is currently flying over Canada on her way to England. We hope that she’ll be able to post some pictures daily that we can then share with you here. If not, we’ll definitely post them upon her return. We can’t wait to hear of her many adventures while in […]

Washington, DC

As always we had a blast while in DC even though it was for such a brief moment. We drove past Georgetown Cupcake, but opted to spend our time elsewhere instead of the hour long line wrapped around the building. We ate Italian at Filomena’s on Friday night. Best AGNOLOTTI ALLA PANNA  I have ever tasted. […]

College Road Trip #2

This past weekend we spent 10+ hours in the car to DC to visit Georgetown University. There’s so much history to be had here! I’m sure we barely touched the surface of what this campus had to offer. I only wish that the tour had been a bit more in depth as not much was […]

College Road Trips

Last weekend we took a brief road trip to visit the University of Missouri in Columbia, MO. What a lovely campus! Having never been past St. Louis, we weren’t sure what to expect from such a small college town. Turns out that downtown Columbia is reminiscent of downtown Franklin, TN! We’re not sure if L will […]
