June 22nd finally arrived--the beginning of a new adventure for my son, Jason and his wife, Cristen. Jason has taken a 2 year assignment with his firm to work here in London, and so their adventure now begins! They are living with us for now, so we're all working on finding extra storage space in nooks and crannies that we have never used before today.
Their first day here, they were determined to stay awake and keep moving after an overnight flight, but.... they sat down for a few minutes and the next time I peeked on them, they were out like a light. They're up and going today though. We made a trek to Chiswick to pick up a chest of drawers that they purchased from an outgoing American expat, went for lunch at Chipotle (they needed a Mexican food fix, after all, they had been away from Houston 24 hours) and headed to the bank to discuss ££££'s. They rounded out the afternoon at the local pub watching England beat Slovenia to go forward in the World Cup rounds. Welcome to the London life, kids!
