Shelb's off to England...and we're off to New England! πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ’‚

Well, we are all on our way to our "England" destinations.  Shelb's group of 11 students and 3 teachers just left Newark airport and arrive in London tomorrow around 9am.  Hard to believe she is on her way to a new country. The first of our children to visit Europe.  Go Shelb!  We are just thankful she and her group are not sleeping in the Jersey airport.  They had a 2.5 hr delay in Indy and missed their first flight to England. But apparently it was not a prob to get 14 people on the last flight out. Phew!  She was excited to text me earlier that she sat next to Bernie Sanders on the airport shuttle in NJ.  Fun!  And we are part way thru PA on our 18hr jaunt to New England (Boston!).  It's weird not having our crazy Shelb cruising with us, but we cloned her head so she's sorta along for the ride! :).  This is one long drive and poor Kev is tired!  But gotta get more than halfway so we can get to Hays' tour of Boston university tomorrow.  Gotta squeeze those college tours in when we can!  Our only snag was forgetting all our bags of packed snacks in the kitchen.  So we had to stop at an Ohio Meijer to replenish.  But all is well tonight and I'm so excited to see pics of Shelb's British adventures.  What a gift this trip is for her.  Hope she eats lots of scones and stays away from the bangers so the air around her smells sweet and fresh! :)

Bonjour, Nathalie! Shelby very much wishes she could visit you and Paris this next week. She mentioned it several times about how close it was and what a dream come true that would be! She is so excited about this trip. She landed 3hrs ago and I imagine she is already at the community college. Wish I was there too so we could take the train to see you! Hope you are well! Much love! ❤️

I really hope one day we can visit Nathalie! It would be such a fun trip to see you and Paris! I'm so happy Shelby can see the sights of London. Such a beautiful city. My Kevin has been both to London and Paris. He is luckier than me! Hugs from the USA!
