    In Boston you can walk the Freedom Trail and get lots of history in. You can print off the directions for the trail and just follow it. I don’t think it costs anything. C and my Dad did it in the spring and they highly recommend it!

    Ahem! That bold red suitcase is not ugly, it’s mine! Besides, anything with that many pockets is not ugly! 😀 And Cassia and I were not arguing about which suitcases we wanted to bring… hee, hee! 😆

    Better go work on the list!

    You seem to have more items on your to-do list than there are possible hours in a day!
    I love how organised you ladies are!

    Looking forward to seeing some great pictures here in the coming weeks, courtesy of our Seven Sisters! Have a safe and fun trip! 🙂

    Blessings,

    I love how you’ve got everything so organized…I need to learn from y’all. LOL In reply to your question on the shipping date for the hats….I need to get the exact shipping date for the container. The ministry told me the container would be leaving toward the end of October. So obviously, the earlier you mail them the better. Since you’re going on a trip, maybe you should try to mail them on your way. And I’ll try to get an exact shipping date for the container and let you all know! Hope I helped, Susannah! Blessings!

    nothing for Boston??? That seems hard to believe. Surely with all the history in that region there ought to be something you can do there? 🙂 Anything about the Boston Tea Party? Isn’t that where the Sons of Liberty used to meet? Hope you find something :).

    If that’s LOADS of laundry, I wonder what ours is? 😀 Well, I can use the excuse that we have more BOYS than y’all do. Hee hee! Yes, that’s it. Boys take up a lot of clothes, you know. But I think you have very little laundry there. 😉
    I’m praying for your trip!
