You may notice that the first photo above isn’t quite like the others. That’s because on our way to Furnace Brook Middle School today for a visit with Boston Red Sox catcher, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, the SUV we were being driven in caught a flat tire and we were forced to pull over on the side of Route 3 near Marshfield, MA. Salty was really cool about the delay, and we all sat in the car listening to country music for about fifteen minutes until a backup car showed up. I snapped a few quick photos as we changed cars on the side of the highway, and we moved on. The event itself went fine. Our flat tire fiasco combined with a gym full of screaming middle schoolers made for an interesting morning. Never a dull moment.
