Field Trip: Europe!
Dressed up for an English wedding!
Our homeschool has moved abroad! We've begun a 5-month stay in Europe. I'm teaching in my university's program in London for the fall semester, and Tim, N. and I came across the water early for two weddings, a conference on Frances Burney, and a month-long stay in Paris before the fall term begins. We were filled with anticipation and anxiety for the past year as we prepared for this experience, and we are so excited that it has begun! We've been abroad for a week so far. We spent several days in Skipton, Yorkshire attending a family wedding. Then we went to Cambridge where I attended my conference. And today we arrived in Paris. N. had been especially nervous about Paris because our French studies have been quite slow, but today he was pumped up as we walked the streets of the neighborhood where we've rented an apartment, bought some groceries, tested our language skills, learned new words. "This is going to be really fun!"
