The highlight for me was our walk on The Freedom Trail. It was less crowded, albeit a chilly day to be hoofing it on the city streets with 7th graders, many of whom weren't properly dressed for the cool sea temperatures. Still, I was appropriately dressed, so the fresh air and historic sites were stellar. We had a lovely tour guide who chatted and joked with the kids, as well as filled us up with historic tidbits and facts that you don't find in your average history text.

All in all, it was a great day (for us, not James Otis). We were back home by 6:15 PM, in plenty of time for dinner.
