Return To England!
My wife, son, and myself will be visiting England this summer for 2 weeks. We will stay in Derbyshire, Monyash for the first week, then back to Buckinghamshire, Stewkley for the last week! My son Jack is very excited to visit the place where my father and I stayed. He can't wait to meet Jill Scott, our most wonderful host at Dormer Cottage. I can't wait to show Angela Woburn Abbey, home to the Russell Family. She is connected to a Sir John Russell from the 1500's that was from Bedford, England. And of course, I can't wait to share Cranfield with them both. It will be neat for Jack to see where the Wheeler family came from and to visit the church. We have British friends that have lived in the states for over 25 years. They have family that live in Sheffield. We plan to meet up with them when we are in Monyash. Angela and I both love Jane Austen, especially the movies that have been about her books. It will be neat to see some of the places that she mentions in her novels.
