Back and catching up

Everyone has said that jet lag is easier going west than east....I'm not sure I agree!  Maybe because it is easier for me to go to bed and wake up early versus staying up late.  Maybe it is that spring is in full force here and it wasn't there.  Anyway, I'm getting there!  Maybe tonight I will be able to stay up until 9 pm!

Here is the official proof:

I am now a world traveler!  
So where to start?  Math....the real reason for the trip.....productive!  I worked very hard on this trip (maybe that is why I'm so tired now?) and it was awesome to be able to talk to my advisor daily!   It is a true answer to prayer that the long distance thing is working and I'm progressing on my research!  

My second weekend in Glasgow we went to Sterling Castle!  It was awesome!  Renovated in the 1500's!  I love seeing where the royalty would preserve over the great hall....just like the movies!

I guess I'm going to let the pictures tell the story of the castle (there are more...I'll show you in another post...don't want this one too long)

I just love this one...looking out the window...too cool!

So let's see....I still need to tell you about....so many things!

I have a passport, but doubt it will ever get a stamp.

Welcome home, Leah! It sounds like you had a wonderful and productive trip. I'm wondering whether you found the same yarnshop in Glasgow that we did... Gosh, I sure could have used your math talent on my Noah quilt!
