I'm Back!

I know, I know. You didn't even realize I was gone. Didn't Franki do a GREAT job keeping the blog rolling?!?

Where was I? First, we went to Germany to celebrate the 80th birthday of my German "mom" (honorary title earned during my 6-weeks stay as a Lion's Club exchange student in high school).

(The German countryside, seen from the airplane window.)

Then we flew to the UK and drove 755 miles around southern England.

(That's the Thames River flowing into the English Channel.)

Stay tuned for the details of my European children's literature moments.


  1. Welcome back! Can't wait to hear more details! Since I visited Europe in the fall, I find I'm drawn to people who have been there also. I love talking about it. Hope you have great pix to share for our next trip to Northstar!!

  2. Oooo, sounds like great fun! Franki did do a great job while you were gone, but your wrong... I did notice you were missing.

  3. Sounds like a great beginning to your trip...I love that you were able to share in her 80th celebration! The pictures are great and can't wait to hear more!

  4. welcome back, Mary Lee! I can't wait to see more pictures!! We're in the U.K. right now :)

  5. Sounds like an amazing trip!
    Glad you're back and blogging.
