“We are part of this universe; we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts, is that the universe is in us.” ― Neil deGrasse Tyson

With great self-assurance, our boys assumed the roles of representatives from the 13 colonies calling for independence, including famous Americans Thomas Jefferson, John Hancock, and Patrick Henry.
Fantastic job, boys!
The boys had been hard at work and having a blast for two weeks on the Nerdy Derby interdisciplinary STEAM project, a unit that put the boys' creative design, and math and science skills to the test as they built miniature cars to compete in the final race down a 50-foot track.

At the top of the Campanile in the pouring rain.
On their way down the 450 old steps--a first--in honor of Mr. Kilkeary the boys boisterously sang "I Danced in the Morning..." followed quickly by "Amazing Grace" and "Despacito." I'm not sure what the soaking throng of tourists making their way up the tower thought, but smiles covered their faces!
A bleak day made bright.
It was quite something... had to be the rain!
