Make way for the Cherry Blossom Princesses!

Best Blogger Tips
This morning, our Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Institute for youth with developmental disabilities played host to some very special guests - the Cherry Blossom Princesses! Each year, the royals spends some time chatting, sharing breakfast and playing games with students at our Kennedy School and the little ones from the Early Head Start Program. Their visit was so popular that many Kennedy students headed outside to wave goodbye as the princesses processed back to their buses. Special thanks to all the princesses for coming by! Scroll down to check out some photos from the big event!
