past few days.

You won't believe what a sacrifice it is to blog here.
You have to either be giving up sleep time, homework time, show time, or site-seeing time.
But it's so worth it to have a record!
Here's what we've been up to:
 Seeing Platform 9 and 3/4...unfortunately it was under construction. But this plastic wall was satisfactory.
Going to the British Library where we saw the Magna Carta, Jane Austen's writing desk (with books written in her hand), the Gutenberg Bible, Shakespeare's First Folio, etc.
Making friends :)
Going to the National Portrait Gallery.
Seeing ginormous ships in bottles.
Seeing Trafalgar Square.
"For Aslan!" (and for Kitty-you know who you are)
Traveling on the London Bridge.
I don't know if you've noticed, but we've added an ongoing list on the right hand side of the blog. This is an updated list of all the shows we'll be seeing while we're here. We have a goal to see 30.
Last night we saw, "All's Well That Ends Well" at The Globe. It was fantastic!
It got a little chilly, I was wearing tights, I saw Add's insulated backpack...what can I say? I am my Father's daughter. Resourceful.
Tonight we saw Clybourne Park. And it totally blew our minds! A dark comedy that reflects 1959 to 2009. It deals with issues of race, suicide, real estate, and basically everything in between. Incredible actors, script, and set. We can't stop talking about it!
