This video is a bit late--it's from last year's trip. There were all sorts of technical issues and time constraints that finally got worked out, so here it is.

Stay tuned for that. Here is the text from the video:

The background music is from a concert by the Northern Kentucky 5th grade Honor Choir performed later that year. Maddie was one of the sopranos.
