Weekend Cool Down

30 Jun

On a warm day like today, why not visit the Boston Frog Pond? The City of Boston welcomes the people of Boston back to cool down in the summer heat on Boston Common as the Frog Pond reopens for summer activities. The Frog Pond spray pool and wading program is open daily from 11:00am to 6:00pm until Labor Day. It’s the perfect location for a quick cool down in summer heat.

 

Enjoy the long weekend and be sure to see some fireworks!

Independent Study

23 Jun

On rainy days like these, there is not a lot of incentive to go outside. The worst part about them is that you are either running out of things to do indoors, or you are not inspired to pursue anything. We here at the center suggest tuning into PBS: Frontline and watching one of the numerous free documentaries they broadcast.

Now go enjoy!

Until tomorrow,

Singin’ in the Rain

22 Jun

It is 66 and raining, what a grim day for Boston. With temperatures leveling out into the low 70’s, it seems that till the end of this week, Boston will be covered by a constant rain clouds.

Hopefully this will put a smile on your face and banish those rainclouds away. =D

Until tomorrow,
