Who’s excited for winter break? Are you @MrsJBurgin or maybe @APS_HankHenry is more excited. Either way making sure that you’re prepared is a year round commitment. When you’re home for break remember all those snacks are probably for emergencies. Don’t inhale them all at once. https://t.co/pFo9G956i4
