What a thrilling experience.

What an honor and a privilege to perform at the Notre Dame Cathedral!

A huge crowd gathered as we sang.
This would be a real highlight of the tour for many of the girls.
People were coming up to us afterwards and telling us how great we did. Stephanie Snook
We sang "The Lord's Prayer"
We processed out and the crowd applauded. This would be our last performance.
By now it was raining in Paris. We did some shopping
some of us went to the Louvre.
After the performance we changed clothes and had free time.
Those plastic raincoats finally came in handy!
We changed clothes and some went shopping and others went to
the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa. Unfortunately some didn't get to
see it but I did. I was so happy!
Some of us went to the Louvre to see the Mona Lisa.
Mrs. Carter went with the girls to the Louvre.
We all posed in front of the "Winged Victory" statue.
Some of us were lucky enough to see the Mona Lisa.
It was still an experience to be at the Louvre, right Marilyn?

Tonight we had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe
We all went to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner.
After shopping we had dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe.
The food was great, and we got to buy T-shirts if we wanted.
Everyone was happy!
Some even looked really happy, like this group!
Mrs. Covington, where's your food - better go shop.
Hey - Mrs. Carter got her Dr. Pepper - Yea!
Stephanie, Lindsay, Marianne and Mallory were friends the whole tour.
That evening we went on a boat ride on the Seine River
