Thank you all so much for making this week such a fun experience from. You guys really helped me to understand my work when I had troubles. Especially Lori, thank you a lot for wanting me to take a break and have some fun. It was great being able to play all the fun games with you. Also, Joe you were a huge help to my math work and I don’t know if I could’ve done it without you. Overall I just want to say thank you so much for making my week better and funner.
