~~~Update from Dimitri & Ashley
Seems like only yesterday that Dimitri was running the halls at North Point. His mom sent this update recently! Good to see him settling in to his new home.
I wanted to share Dimitri’s first couple weeks here in England! We’ve been very busy setting things up here but also getting out for some major adventures! It’s been nice to have that bit of time get settled in.
Dimitri has been now to the London Zoo, the Tower of London, Dover Castle, the Clink Museum & the Golden Hinde, and the Museum of London. We’re still held up getting into our house – hopefully end of this week… but Dimitri started school this morning! I’ve attached pictures of him for his first day! He’s nervous going in but he has an excellent teacher that he met already and seems to be getting on well with. His teacher is a Canadian & American history and geography expert! He studied in South Carolina I think it was. He also has another teacher who is from Hamilton Ontario. She’s lived in the UK for 10 years. Seems to be a great fit and though he’s nervous and had a hard time sleeping last night, he seems excited to be there. He is settling in very well but he misses you all and hopes everything is going well at North Point.
Take care, Ashley
