Of course, Jane Darby and I spent upwards of ten minutes hugging and shrieking and weeping and moping and loving. I feel like before this, we were two Classics-enthused girls who had been told by Howard Chang that we had a lot in common, but this weekend allowed us to connect a lot over our high school and JCL experiences, calm one another down when necessary (often), and become even closer as the twin sisters that we are.
Before farewells, I kept score as Jane moderated for the novice level. It was great to be able to chat with some of the younger teams in between rounds and encourage them to continue to foster their fondness for Latin.
I spent the morning moderating intermediate level rounds. Eliot and I had a great time alternating between reading and keeping score -- my Harvard brother kept me sane!
