Charles in London

Hi Room 1
Well I've arrived in London, just in time for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.  Not had the chance to take any photographs yet though because the weather is so terrible.  Boy, can it rain in England!
I'll post some pics very soon.

and who is this...?

Can you guess who this is?
It's been huge over here! And most french people really like this guy - who is he and what does he stand for?

Here is a typical Parisienne house - lots of little windows and balconies and wrought iron balustrades. Look at the interesting roof line too and all the chimney pots! Years ago almost every room had its own fireplace, but then the French government stopped this because of the smoke emissions problem - so most of them don 't get used any more.

Out for lunch...

George Pompidou Centre

 Today I am at the George Pompidou Centre - a museum of Modern Art. It's a great structure. All it's exterior is exposed and it has an external escalator so you can see Paris as you ride up it, to the top floor!

This is a view over Paris...I'm holding on tight!

Bonjour everyone! Here I am on the steps of the Sacre Coeur in Paris! Having a great old time listening to this busker - good he is too. Watch for my adventures in Paris. Au revoir!

Charles goes to the Omaha Zoo in Nebraska

Hi Everyone,

The kids have been on Spring Break this week.  We went to Des Monies which is about 3 hours away to visit their Aunt Brenda and their cousins.  We then drove another 2 hours to go to the Omaha Zoo.  Here are some of the animals that we saw.  I think Charles enjoyed himself.

We got snow:)

We woke up Friday to 12 cm of snow.  Because of the snow school started two hours late.  Some of the snow has melted.  Today Charles went outside with the kids and did some sledding.  Of course with sledding you need to fall off!  Charles also went with us to get hay for the ponies.

Charles went with us to parent teacher interviews.  While we were there Natalie and Grace took him on a tour.

My last day in NYC

Today was my last day in NYC!  I will miss this class, but I had a good send off and I am really looking forward to my next new adventures.  Before I left...

They designed and created a denim vest for me.  It was very chic, but I decided to leave it in NYC, for when I come back to visit again.
 It fit well, good for a NY fall or springtime.
They also made me this patch to remember all the sites I saw.  The Empire State Building, an apple for the "Big Apple," and the famous N.Y. initials.
 I wear it proudly!
 Very comfy!

 Here I am, being tucked away into a soft bag- my "sleeping bag" until I'm opened up again...
Off to my new destination!!  Where will I turn up next?!  Stay tuned to find out...

My trip to California

 Uh, finally, my first flight not in a parcel!  I made it to L.A.!
 What a beautiful beach coastline for the Los Angeles residents.
 At the Bel Air Hotel.  The best grilled cheese of ALL TIME!
 What a hike!  What a cool hat I'm wearing! D'Oh!
 Look how high I am up on the ferris wheel at Santa Monica Pier.  Wow!
 Wow, the "Friends" set! It's so cool, I got to go to an actual t.v. studio!
 WAZ UP! Watching skaters in L.A.! WOW look at that trick!
My first Hannukah!
What a beautiful sunset on the Los Angeles coast.  I don't want to go home!
