How We Refuel – Hugs & Smiles!

We had a wonderful day in New Orleans visiting The Esperenza Charter School and giving away another 1,000 books.  Each child was invited to join us on our trip through our website.  It was so much fun to answer questions and share stories from our adventures.  They are all so smart, curious and funny.
