Recently, we had a very challenging week. We would like to thank you all for the patience and support you showed as we navigated our way through all the challenges. Issues with our heat, our phones, and some accidents–which caused some pretty long bus delays–gave us a lot of opportunities to practice patience and kindness. Thank you all for being so understanding!
