Veterans Day in Boston
My family and I spent Veterans Day weekend in Boston. It is one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the United States and one of my favorites.
We had a great time at Harvard!
We visited the Old North Church and heard the "inside" story of the ride of Paul Revere.
On Salem Street, in the Old North End, we stumbled upon the MOST AMAZING Italian Bakery (Bova's)
We also visited the site of Boston Latin School, America's First Organized School, whose graduates included four signers of the Declaration of Independence, including Benjamin Franklin.
The highlight of our trip was seeing Melissa McLaughlin, a former Joyner teacher who now teaches in the Boston area. We really miss her!
