My department runs an annual program called Wheaton in England. I haven’t participated in the program since 2004, in part because, though it’s incredibly fun, it’s also incredibly exhausting. But this summer is my son’s last chance to go on the program before he enters college — which is to say, this is probably the last time for the Jacobses to go as a family. Plus I get the chance to go with my great friend Brett Foster. So I’m excited.

In a few days we begin, and will be in England until early August, and I’m not sure what that’s going to  mean for this blog — except that I’m not going to be posting as often, because (a) internet access will be a bit spotty and (b) I’ll be really, really busy. And I don’t know what I’ll be posting about: there could be more off-topic look-at-this-awesome-old-castle posts. Or I’m-freaked-out-about-Wayne-Rooney’s-hair-transplant posts. So be ready for anything, but not much of it.


  1. Have lots of fun! WIE (2005, I think) was definitely the high point of my time up there. What will you be teaching?

    Also, any plans on going to Tintagel and staying in the Camelot Castle Hotel…?
