Princeton WannaBe Blog
I'm not a real historian. I didn't grow up in Princeton. I don't have an Ivy League education.
I'm a total Princeton WannaBe.
Still, I gush about loving the heart of Princeton as much as I can!
Every year, the 5th Graders of Princeton Riverside Elementary School head to Gettysburg.
My son has attended this school since he was 5 years old. To him, the Gettysburg Boondoggle is better than any MTV Spring Break Marathon:
"Mom, we get to ride in a bus .... with a real BATHROOM!" (I really don't want to think about that but he's SO FIRED UP about it I had to list it here.)
"Mom, the tour guides wear costumes ..... " (Stosh has been begging me to wear costumes on our tours and even though the notion of a period specific costume with a high neck collar appeals to me I've resisted. Plus, he's headed to Middle School and he hasn't figured out the ONLY think worse than a tour guide for a mother is a tour guide as a mother dressed in period clothing ....)
"Mom, we get to eat at General Pickett's Buffet .... (Okay, that got my attention so I looked it up on TripAdvisor ... they get a SOLID 3 stars which is about 2 stars more than Stosh would require for an all you can eat dessert bar!)
