It’s Wednesday, hump day of our first week here in Boston. Charlene and I have been battling colds. That’s made for a slow start to the fun. Today, Charlene, my mother, and the kids finally got out to do something fun. They visited Salem, famous for the witch trials. Sure beats another day in the hotel. Sunday we managed to drag ourselves out of bed after a few hours sleep to attend Park Street Church, before taking a walk around Boston Common and heading to Legal Sea Foods for lunch. Walking with a five-year-old was a little different than the type of walking we did last year. I only have part of my voice right now; hope to get over this soon. School has been different from last year. It’s been more lecture mode, and while it’s been good, I miss some of the interaction we had last year. It’s good to see the other students again though.
