Family smore for 6.8.17
When we started the school year, our first blog post ended with three words- Be the one! It was inspired by Gene Wilder's character in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory". I watched you all this year find ways to "Be the one" for our kids and for each other. Don't forget that you have a chance to make a difference every day, so why not make it a good difference. If you need anything, don't hesitate to reach out. I'm around most of the summer. Take time for yourself and your family these next couple of weeks. They deserve to have you back full time.
Be the one for them!
Take care of the kids. Take care of each other. Take care of yourself.- John Gunnell
