Getting ready to go

Welcome to our Boston Trip Blog!  This will be an ongoing update of all the fun we will be having in Boston this week.  Please feel free to share this site with friends and family by simply cutting and pasting the address above to send to them.  You can also enter email addresses in the sidebar to receive notices whenever the blog is updated.

Organizing a big trip like this takes a lot of time and effort but it is so much fun!  We have been crafting the itinerary including identifying the various places we will go, how we will get there, and what special experiences will be part of each place.  We have a basic itinerary, but there will be lots of times that the kids will make choices for us too.  We have also been insuring a good, safe adventure by planning ahead and taking all the right precautions.  We do know the metropolitan area well.  "Beantown" is such a wonderful city, rich in history, culture, and adventure.  Here is our list of events as of now:

Harvard Square
New England Aquarium
Freedom Trail
Boston Museum of Science
Imax Theater
Maparium at the Christian Science Center
Museum of Fine Arts
Quincy Market
Fenway Park Tour
Shear Madness Show

By the way, if you would like to see our specific Google Calendar of events for the week just drop me an email request (PGilmore@vermontcommons.org) and I will add you to the Google Calendar list.  It will be the most up to date information on where we are and where we are going at any moment.

One of the nice things about this trip will be our opportunities to work with the class as a whole.  There will be lots of opportunities to make decisions as a team, work in smaller teams, and share as individuals.  We recognize that this is a special group of kids and we are looking forward to bringing them even closer together.

Onward!   Heather and Peter
