He said that a lot of adults have trouble working together to reach a common goal, and that he could think of 535 particular ones.
And you could tell the audience was thinking, "oh.... SNAP!"
Lulz! Sounds like an amazing weekend with amazing students. I saw your pictures of folks playing together in the hotel--must have been so much fun to see that and know what an amazing young man you've raised.
Glad you made it there and back safely and that everyone had such a special weekend. Those times really stay with you, don't they? I hope they do for ODS, too!
