Back in Oxford


I’m finally back in Oxford and getting ready to start the third week of Trinity term (the last term of the academic year!).  I have a ton of pictures to share, and so far, I've got all of my trip with Dane posted:

Dane and Madison in Oxford:

Stockholm, Sweden:

Geneva, Switzerland:

Amsterdam, The Netherlands:


Paris, France:


 (p.s. If you are looking for pictures of the actual engagement, it's in 2nd album/link--Sweden)

I’ll be finishing up pictures from Berlin through Rome soon, and I’ll let you know when I do!

This term is going really well so far. I have some good tutorials, and I’m much better adjusted to the system so I can do more fun things and still get plenty of work done! My tutorials this term are Post Modern and Contemporary Lit (major) and C.S. Lewis (minor). It is a busy term; there are things going on all the time here! Springtime in Oxford is a fun experience; things really come alive, and I get to be outdoors more. And, surprise, it is actually sunny here (sometimes)! On the downside, it’s tourist season, but oh well, I've been a tourist too. Here is the album I’ve started so far with some Oxford pictures:

Here are some of the things I’m looking forward to in the next few weeks:

--Tea Party at the Warner’s, May 17, Penelope makes outstanding cakes, desserts, and cucumber sandwiches . . . and we all stuff our faces.

--Seeing Les Mis in London, May 13, a short trip into London a few of us planned

--Trip to Stratford upon Avon, May 25, an excursion with OOSC

--Beating of the Bounds, May 21, an Oxford tradition that sounds like something possibly out of Harry Potter . . . see the links

--WJC choir comes to Oxford, May 28, Yay!!

--Trip to Stonehenge, June 13, an excursion with OOSC

--Jacque, Joy and Madison take a day trip to London

--Walk up to The Kiln’s (C.S. Lewis home) and Lewis’s gravesite


And the term will be over before I know it, and I’ll be back in KC on June 21!
