Salvete! A warm greeting from all of us and from Kirby Ann's Kirby, which she made for her officer campaign.
Today was relatively relaxing, though no less rewarding. We enjoyed another round of Greek classes and continued mid-academy self evaluations. After lunch, we attend an elective class and enjoyed a social with Japanese academy hosted by Robert Lindgren, President of Randolph-Macon College. Then we continued work on our production of Menaechmi (lines are almost fully memorized and the set is being painted!), and, after dinner, had Greek drill and began preparing for our Roman banquet. There's still plenty to look forward to, so keep watching for more blog posts and check out some pictures from this past week below.
