After dinner, we planned to have about 30-minutes of community building with the other schools. It turned out to be an hour and a half of fun and laughing with all three schools (37 students) while we TYWLS teachers led them in one of our Advisory games we learned at the November PD. Good times.

With the time change we landed in the Azores bright and early, grabbed our wheels and started our Azores 500 trip (get it, like the Indi 500). One of the first things we found ...
