Adjusting to life here in the UK has been an adventure. It's definitely challenging being so far from our families and friends in the US, but we're making the most of living abroad by traveling. A lot.
We started out small, with a weekend here and there spent in London. I got to show my family the London Eye, the Natural History Museum, the Tower. We hit the Science Museum and the V&A, as well.
Little Bug has become a champion train traveler.
We spent Thanksgiving in Dublin, enjoying all the holiday lights.
We saw Hogwarts in the snow!
We saw the White Cliffs of Dover as we took the ferry to Calais.
Mont Saint-Michel was very rainy, but worth it. And the crepes were delicious.
Christmas was rough, not having our family near, but Skype helps. Juniper got a rocking moose, some Mega Bloks, and about three dozen other gifts from her grandmother and great-grandmother. Spoiled Bug!
We've made some really wonderful friends, which has gone a long way towards alleviating the homesickness. And just before 2014 came to a close, we found out that we'll be welcoming a fourth member to our family. I have high hopes for 2015.
