What a glorious morning for our Cross Country Championship today. The children were so thrilled to be out in the fall sunshine for their much anticipated competition.

Who says you can’t ride roller coasters during COVID? I quote, ‘Yukon Striker was insane!’ The virtual roller coaster experience (and cliff diving show) didn’t disappoint. In between rides at…
