About buell

I teach world history to 9th graders at Weymouth High School in Massachusetts. I love my job because I love to tell stories---stories about history and stories about my life as a child of the 80s, stories from my wanna-be journalist days in Washington, DC and stories about my 4 children: Patrick, Veronica, Nora and Agnes. I also tell lots of "what not to do" stories about my dear husband, Jeff.


Tomorrow is my birthday!  Yesterday was my birthday party. We went on my boat. I love my boat. We went to Tarpaulin Cove on the private island of Naushon. We had a really fun time there. There is an old light house at the top of the island and you can walk up to it, it is really pretty. There are wild cows on the island. We didn’t see them this time but we do see them sometimes when we go there. After we left we went to Marthas Vinyard and had dinner at the Lookout Tavern in Oak Bluffs. They have really good food there. After we finished dinner we went on the Flying Horses carousel. It is a special carousel were you catch rings and if you catch the last one you win a free ride! Then we drove home on the boat and came back to open the presents and have cake! One of my presents was my very own laptop! I was so exited I almost died the cake was great all in all I had a really fun bithday.

Taylor Swift consert

Last night I went to a Taylor Swfit consert. It was amazing! I herd all of my favorite songs-fearless, 15, love story and guess what her first song was-you belong to me, my favorite song. How awesome is that! I had a really great time! she had more of a Texas acsent in person. Oh, I forgot it was at Geleit Stadium in Foxboro. It was the last night of the fearless tour. It was awesome.

My Day With the Bruins

Happy New Year! Today the Boston Bruins are playing the Philadelphia Flyers in the Winter Classic. It is a hockey game played outside at Fenway Park where the Red Sox play in the summer. Yesterday, my Dad and I went to Fenway Park to watch the Bruins practice. The players were very nice and we took lots of pictures. Some of the players signed my boots and a hat for my brother.

My Favorite Part of Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is coming. I am so excited. My favorite part of Thanksgiving is that we all go to Marblehead. That is where my Dad grew up. My grandmother does the cooking. We sit down to a table of delicious food. I love the smells as the food is cooking!

After dinner the best part is dessert. We have three kinds of pie: pumpkin, apple and pudding, with icecream. Then the day is done and everyone goes home, except Nora and me. We get to stay and have an extra day with Grammy.

Now you see why I am so excited.
