Tesomas Photos

As many are aware, we are only able to post a few photos out of the hundreds taken during our week at Tesomas while still at camp.  To make sure everyone can access the photos, add their own, and print them, we have created an event site on Shutterfly:

The site is public, so everyone can add and print photos.
