Althorp Visit

Went here in September. Finally got the pictures up.

Got the opportunity to go on a trip to Althorp. This is the location of Princess Diana’s final resting place and is her ancestral home. Her brother, Earl Spencer, currently lives there with his family. It was a visit brought together by the British American Committee. The weather was classic overcast and drizzly English rain. The tour was pleasant. The private tea time we had was wonderful. I discovered the joys of eating jam with clotted cream on a scone. We were happy to see that things were understated and the gift shop not overtly commercialized.

After seeing this house and the grounds, I can’t help but laugh when remembering that during the run up to her wedding Lady Diana was thought of as a commoner. What a different perspective on the world.

Up, up and away!

Mom and the boys are on their way! Max is so excited to be going to see Papa he could hardly stand it. Michael wasn’t too happy but amazingly didn’t complain. He is now listed on Facebook as Michael Englandboy Einreinhof. I don’t believe he’s minding the move that much. One more step then the family will finally be together.
