I’m Back with the Best of the UK (with Kids)

I went MIA. I fully admit it. Blogging through our months in the UK was my original plan, but stretches without internet and the pace we kept during our stay made that plan prohibitive. Plus, I kept a journal every single day all those months, which basically used up any writing energy I had stored up each evening. Excuses aside, in the end I decided that, more than simply telling stories of our adventures, I want this space to help others traveling around the UK, just as I was helped by reading many, many blogs during my planning. Toward that end, it is really much easier to write down what was great and not so great in retrospect rather than in the moment.

We’ve been home for a month now, we’ve begun our new homeschool year, and we’re settling in to our routine. Thus, I will be back on this page with lots of info–our favorite castles and cathedrals, what I packed (and what I shouldn’t have packed), the best nature walks, finding literary sites (and bookshops!), a week in London with kids, and more. I’m excited to share our journey–and the lessons we learned along the way–with you! Stay tuned!
