Peter left for England today and will be away for a week. Ellery and I are staying home in the US this time. With all of the house-hunting and moving plans, it was just too much for us to try and go with him. Toddlers and long airplane flights don’t mix well.
We decided it was best for Peter to go during the Thanksgiving holiday week and he is English and doesn’t really care about celebrating Thanksgiving. But in more practical terms, I only have to cook a turkey for the Christmas holidays instead of Thanksgiving and Christmas. Peter likes to have turkey at Christmas. Apparently that is an English tradition, so my mother is coming over to the house and we are having lasagna instead. Don’t ask.
My father, Richard, and stepfather Lionel will be joining us, and Ellery and Asia of course!
