This week was calmer that the previous one. I tried to pace myself more and focus more on work that falls within my normal year-round challenges, as well as my class assignment. Let's take a look: I completed all the posters for my children's choir project. I am so happy to have this done and that … Continue reading April 2017: Week 2
