Week of 4/7

With a week off from posting, there’s a lot to share!

Schedule Changes in April

First, two more schedule changes: 1. This week, class is on Monday and Wednesday (not Thursday, April 12–it’s my daughter’s play) 2. Week of April 23, class is on a Thursday and Friday (2 days in a row will be fun :-). I’m at a national competition with my students. That should be it for schedule changes for a while.

5K Sap Run and Upcoming Rescue Run

Congratulations to the first-time 5k runners . . . Cindy C., Robin C., Karen G., & Paula M. It feels so good to achieve a goal; it motivates you to keep going, continue to conquer more and more . . . it’s a wave of feelgoodness!
