We’ve been on the road for the last couple of weeks. We went to the beach and then were home for 24 hours before heading off to London. The trip was a gift from my dad (Thanks, Dad!) and we stayed with friends of his outside of London. It was exceptionally nice of them to put us up for a week. The kids had a great time even though we shuffled them off to every tourist attraction possible. We did the Eye of London, the Tower of London, and the Natural History Museum. We also made a trip to Oxford and to Hampton Court. Now it’s back to reality, with some housework to catch up on, school forms to fill out, and more. Half the summer is really gone (at least for me). It feels weird. I hope everyone else’s summer has been relaxing and fulfilling.
