Boston Scared Me.

We took the whole 8th grade to Boston and its surrounds for three whole days. Two nights. Yes. It was as invigorating as it sounds! Besides some chewing tobacco and a wrestling-induced broken wrist sending two kids home, it was relatively event-free. Which meant I could focus on the rich history this city has to offer. Except I couldn't, because I kept getting distracted by things that scared me. Here are some visuals:

Sounds like an interesting trip. The clown is a little freaky. The walk-a-bear reminds of the time they used to have the invisible pets (a leash like that, but no little animal attached).

Oh yeah, did you really ever see Princess Diana?

Are those paper mache' people real?

Kat said...

Is that a jar of pickled something freaky like pigs feet behind that bear???

There are definately some scary things in Boston, apparantly. Although I'm glad the bears are safe...in the fridge. Wtf?

"Paper Mache' Jury" sounds like a good band name. :)

I can't imagine taking the whole 8th grade class anywhere. You're not talking "just the good kids." You're talking everyone?

Yikes. Bless you, dear.

Boston scares me too, but mostly because of the Red Sox fans.

They can be an angry bunch!

Not today, of course. :(
