Wow! There is so much to recap I can’t do it in one post without making it huge. but I’ll spend the next couple weeks recapping for you all.

We’ve had one cancellation today. The Instructor didn’t show up and can’t be reached. I hope they are okay.

I’ll update this as the day goes by. πŸ™‚ I can tell it will be a long, enlightening day. I’m learning a lot and hope to pass it on to all of you. I’ve taken in depth notes and will continue to do so as the day goes on.
