once upon a time i moved to boston

So here I am. Finally back on the blogging scene after taking the summer off to move across the country to Bean Town. And lemme just say...I LOVE IT HERE! Everything about this city is lovely, well not the traffic, but almost everything. In May I landed a job as a teacher in a high school just outside Boston. I start next week, yikes. I get to teach what I love (child development, cooking, and fashion design), and for that I am grateful to have a job that I will enjoy.

For the summer, I took care a couple of really awesome children from Ireland. I had so much fun with them going to the Children's Museum of Boson, Outdoor Movies on the Charles, Painting Pottery, Painting Paper, Running through Sprinklers, Swimming, Revolution Game, Red Sox Game, Board Games, Making Volcanoes and Mermaid Castles, and Enjoying BBQ's and Walking Katie Dog. It's been a while since I have been in the nanny world and I loved every minute of it. I was so sad to send them back to Dublin.

My nephew Hayden came out for a visit and we enjoyed a very busy week touring around Boston, Cambridge, Newport, RI and New York. It was stellar having him here and I hope his stories and pics prompt more family and friend visits to this glorious part of the country (wink).
