"Our kids have done such a great job of adjusting and raising the bar as the season goes on. I'm really proud of the way they've stepped out of their comfort zone and worked on the things we've asked them to do. This group is a lot of fun to work with every day, and I'm really excited to see how they finish out the month of October."
