Week 1 Overview

Hi everyone! We have now spent a week in England and it has been excellent! Some of this week has been boring, cleaning and setting up the house, but we have also done some brilliant stuff too...
We live in a small village North of London called Welwyn, with many interesting things to do. Our godmother has an allotment three minutes away from our house. We've spent some time there this week, picking and watering fruits and vegetables.

About a one minute walk away from our house is a bridge and sometimes ducks. They're fun to watch and take pictures of. I love how there are so many fun things to do to get me outside without even noticing!

This past week we have been into London a couple of times to see various sites and destinations. First of all, we have seen the tallest building in the U.K., The Shard, standing at 306 meters, or about 1,000 feet.

We have also driven over Tower Bridge, which is 129 years old. From it you can see many of London's sites including The London Eye, and The Tower of London.

Lastly, we have been to Trafalgar Square to see the National Gallery, which holds Van Gogh's Sunflowers, and Monet's Water Lilies, as well as many other famous paintings. We also saw Nelson's column which stands in the middle of Trafalgar Square.

All things considered, I'd say this week was EXCELLENT!


  1. It sounds like an excellent week boys!! So excited for your adventure! I loved the National Gallery. Can you believe the last time I was in the UK the London Eye wasn't built yet. I think it is time I come for a visit!

  2. Sounds like you guys are having fun.. There's a typo Picking weeks instead of picking weeds.
