The very first post I did was on July 8th, 2005 - almost 4 years ago! That post included the photo above and was about Galloping the Globe (a WONDERFUL curriculum) and Ireland. My sister-in-law and my in-laws were going to Ireland and took these two Flat Friends for Alexandra. They took photos with them and created a scrapbook of Ireland that Alexandra still has.
That trip to Ireland was because my sister-in-law was teaching in Limerick, Ireland for 3 or 4 weeks. Well, she's going back this July and WE ARE GOING WITH HER!!! Yes, Alexandra and I (and other family members) are heading to

We will be gone a total of 2 weeks and will be visiting Limerick (and surround area), Dublin (for a weekend), and going for 4 days to Edinburgh,

This is our first trip out of the US and we are very excited. I've been doing lots of research and we can't wait to see the castles, the land, the wildlife, the museums.... It'll be wonderful! And, of course, I'll be sharing our trip with our blog friends! I can't wait!


  1. Oh wow how exciting. I can't wait to see all your travels. What a great field trip.


  2. Wow! You and Alexandra are going to have so much fun! I can't wait to see all of the photos and read all about your trip. 2 whole weeks, just wow!

  3. WOW! How neat! Ireland and Scotland are places I would LOVE to visit too.

    And I cannot wait to go on this journey with you via your blog! You must be sure to share a little about the beautiful nature there for me, ok?!
