Welcome back to the Sunday Summary! This is your opportunity to catch the stories of the week that you may have missed.
Given the holiday week, it was a much lighter week of posting. That means that this coming week with have a few catch-up posts as we get back on track for the new year! But, there were still some posts and they are covered here.
