Boston!







I was eager to go to Boston to see the sites I have so often read about as a kid and taught as a fourth grade teacher. Nothing though was as powerful as seeing the Old North Church made famous by the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in the poem Paul Revere's Ride. Bob and I visited Paul Revere's home, Boston Commons, site of the Boston Massacre, saw clothing belonging to John Hancock, sat in the same room where the Constitution was read to the people of Boston. We went to Boston Harbor to see where the Tea Party was held. You can also see that we did not forget that Boston is famous for a few other things, Cheers, lobster and Robert McClosky's Make Way for Ducklings (one of my favorite books!)
