Leah, I bought most of this stuff at a very small independent paper crafting store in the town next to me. A few things I got at AC Moore and the planner I ordered from Payne Publishers.

Helena, we have used all kinds of resources through the years but Oak Meadow most of all. Especially in the very young years and again through high school. Best wishes on your first year of homeschooling! :)

Jo, I'm sorry I didn't catch the second part of your comment ... in regards to Boston, I would recommend the following as "must see" sights: Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market The Freedom Trail The Boston Common/Ducklings statues/Swan Boat rides Duck Tours of the Harbor - a GREAT way to see and learn about the city And if they're going outside of the city at all, Concord and Lexington to the northwest are wonderful for historical sights and experiences (particularly the American Revolution, Louisa May Alcott House, Walden Pond) As for an Italian restaurant ... there are plenty to choose from in the North End. Mike's Pastries is a must for coffee and treats! :) Hope this helps a little ... I am not much of a city person but I am very proud of Boston! :)

Thank you all for sharing your children's walking experiences! LB is still taking it slow - he can get around much faster by crawling lol! (And he does love being carried by his Mama.) :)

Lol, Penny - the more the merrier! ;D
Kelly, we watch Father Brown on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on our local (Boston) PBS station. I am not sure if other PBS stations are carrying it or if perhaps you can watch it online ... try googling it and see what comes up. It is a really wonderful show!
