This week's pictures were taken in a hotel room. Yep, it's our annual "vacation," a.k.a. the time of year when Massachusetts music educators pay for Nathan to be the All-State chorus accompanist and put him up in a hotel room in Boston. Sure, it's only 30 minutes from home, but what kind of person would I be if I turned down a free hotel stay? So I like to pretend it's a three-day vacation, even though I have grad school, teaching, and the usual activities going on.
