|REX-IN-AETERNUM-VIVE!!!!!!! Wow!! We sure made a lot of progress today. Can you believe how far we've come since Monday morning??? You sang so beautifully at Mass today. Please remember to wear clothes that will be comfortable under your costumes tomorrow. I'm already getting kinda sad about camp ending tomorrow. So let's make the VERY most of it and enjoy the time we have left together. You ROCK at this!
