New Year, New You(ish) - January Update

Happy Friday! We made it through the first week post winter break and I think everyone was really, really excited to be back.

Oh So Jolly - December Update

Welcome to (maybe?) the craziest month of the year where everything seems to be happening at once and everyone’s busy all the time.

Anyways…. it’s December and we’re looking at under 3 weeks until we wrap up 2021 - which I think we are all okay to see in the rearview mirror. That said, we have less than 10 days to winter break! We got this!! Here’s your December Update:
