Home again, Home again

Home from a fabulous trip over to England with my Oldest daughter. We had such a wonderful time. We extended a School Band trip with a couple days before and after the others. We did so many things, starting with a visit to Windsor Castle and Eton. We headed into the city and took in the West End show Matilda! What amazing talent all those little actors have singing and dancing. We loved it! We located the Platform 9 3/4 at King's Crossing on the way back to our smallest-room-ever-to-be-called-a-Hotel-room! We joined up with the group in Covent Garden the next day and started the whirlwind tour of sights and band practices. The band played at the Anvil mid-week and wrapped up the tour with a performance in the Westminster Central Hall.
It was Fabulous! This is a shot of the all 4 groups combined, 172 students from Canada for a Festival Salute to the Olympic Games in London 2012!
More highlights to come!

Finishing this brief overview: we stayed on and visited Harry Potter World at Warner Brothers on Saturday after the others left.

On Sunday, we headed to Oxford for a few days to catch the places that Harry Potter filmed at and was inspired by out there. We also visited Blenheim Palace...the Gardens are gorgeous, and the maze enthralled us for well over an hour!

busy finishing taxes, so scrapbook pages, card ideas inspired by what I've seen and gleaned from my new British magazines will have to wait...
I'll get back on track as quick as I can!
