Last Day 

Good Morning, All!  

First, thank you for all of your comments!  I feel so connected!! 

Wake up call at 6:20 this morning.  We got an extra five minutes.  Of course, I choose to roll over and wait until 7:00 to get up.  I can be ready in thirty minutes.  Bus here at 8:00. 

Heading to coliseum, forum and pantheon. Caps!!!! 

Free time around piazza Navona and then final concert at 5:00. Hoping to do all the fun stuff out on the square.  We must get electricity from some bat or gelateria.  However forecast of showers this afternoon.  We will see. 

Off for the bus.  Kids all good.  No worries!  Later! Ciao!!!!

  2. Thank you so much for all you have done for these great singers and especially for our two grandchildren, Lexy and Quinn Rile. You will surely be missed but enjoy your retirement. Thanks for all the memories

  3. Congratulations Linda!
    We are proud Julie and Mary had such wonderful opportunities with you and SCSS. You have been a tremendous blessing in their lives and we cannot thank you enough for everything you have taught them. We look forward to the Welcome Home Concert.
    God bless you with safe travels home,
    Peggy and Tony Platz

  4. Thank you so very much for the fantastic updates! We can’t wait to see the photos and hear all about everyone’s experience! We have a friend in Roma, our past tour guide at the Vatican, whom went to Mass to see all of you sing at St. Peter’s. We can’t thank you enough for inviting Austin to join you on your last trip! This will truly be an experience he will never forget!
    Safe travels home!
