Ahem, ladies, just as I said. The boys had a blast. Doug worked them till they were dead tired. He was firm and encouraging, and they loved it.
You have no idea how inspiring it was to see boys of all ages and abilities with looks of determination, struggling but not giving up. Doug had them doing push ups when they missed a catechism question and they all had smiles on their faces.
I am firmly convinced that this is exactly the right approach for boys. Be prepared for the little men to be fired up for more.

Fra Augustine will have some video up in the next day or so. Stay tuned.
