What a wild week!

It’s been a wild week.  We’re at the epicenter of the Super Storm that is basketball, cheering, pep band, and show choir.   All Star Rec Basketball and Pep Band are almost over, but Competition Cheering and Show Choir are ramping up for the upcoming regionals.  It leaves precious little free time.  Mix that in …
