Five British Treats Our Kids Think Your Kids Will Love

When you visit Britain there are some fun treats our family thinks your family will love. You may be able to find some of these in the international section of your grocery store in the states.

What It's Like to Live in London

We've lived in London for six years this month. While moving a family of five to a different country had lots of challenges, London ended up feeling like the right place for our family fairly quickly.

Along with our oldest son, we discuss why London fits for our family and a few of the things we still find difficult. Overall, London now feels like home and we share why the city has become the place we call home.

The Joys of Living in a Small Space

Living in a small space has its challenges but we have found a small space also creates a lot of joy.

A small space has helped our family keep an eye on the amount of stuff that enters our home, makes it easier to keep clean and helps us have family time. Even though we live in a small space, it doesn’t prevent us from hosting in our home.

What We Have Learned from UK Culture

We’ve lived in the United Kingdom for six years and have experienced and learned so much from the culture here. There are things we have ingrained into our lives now or are at least working on making them part of our lives.

We talk about how time is different here, the importance of holiday time, an appreciation for food and travel accessibility.

City Life with a Family

We love living in the city of London as a family. Our family just fits in the city and has adjusted to city life after living in the suburbs. We’re sharing some of the things that look different when you live in the city as a family.

Do We Speak The Same Language in the UK & US?

We moved to the UK five years ago and thought we’d understand most things as we speak the same language. But is the language the same?

Do you know the difference between pants and trousers? We learned this and many other differences in some embarrassing ways. We have a good laugh at some of the differences and the cultural adjustments.
