Flashback to July 27th

Hey guys, sorry this is late. Before I start I want to say we have officially graduated SSP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But as Mr. Bowdon said, this is the only the beginning. I feel like with everything that has happened and us always being in the moment everything has sort of blended together. So I just want to make a list of everything that memorable that has happened at SSP so that we will always remember these 5 ½ weeks. Here I go:

I just want to say that these are not in order, they are just in the order that I remembered them by. SSP was one of the hardest and most fulfilling things I have ever had to do and I know it would not have been as great as it was without all of you guys. I miss you all sooooooo much and will miss our time together but I know that we will see each other in the future. Until next time… Once an SSPer, always an SSPer.
