Today was our last day of Latin classes! Everyone was very sad that we will never again listen to Magister Cavellus inspire us with talks of reflections of chairs and Circumlitio! We don't have anymore passages to translate in Occidat, no more talks about the amazingness/scariness of Agrippina the Younger. And no more spoken Latin! We are all very sad that such an amazing experience is coming to an end.
Memoranda added the finishing touches to the video, we are all very excited to see it in the coming days! Those involved in the play had a final dress rehearsal today before all our friends, teachers, and parents see it tomorrow! Everyone not involved was able to watch it, and they had wonderful reviews. We are looking forward to seeing it tomorrow with our friends and family!
As tomorrow is our last full day here, we started packing this afternoon. It was very sad to see all of our friends emptying the rooms where we have made so many memories over the past few weeks! We are still looking forward to seeing our family on Sunday!
