Here's my three girls at Boston Harbor! For some reason they were acting really silly when the camera was pointed at them.
When I woke up last Saturday (the day of the trip), I couldn't move and my throat was on fire... I told Mike to forget it. Forget all the snacks we packed, forget the tickets we prepaid. I'm not moving. Then about ten minutes later I changed my mind and we raced out the door to meet the bus.
The trip was great, I loved not having to drive. The kids behaved well and seem to really like the Boston Aquarium. Naomi, my three year old, had an annoying habit of dropping to her knees every few feet to play with broken glass, or peer down manhole covers trying to see the sewer. I guess she's just a country kid, ... that'll change.
"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
