Group Discussion Topic: Children

Hey everybody!  Sorry for the late post!

We will start the discussion with a beginner question, and then an intermediate question, and with the rest of the time we will ask the advanced questions!

We no longer have a Tuesday class, just a Monday class now.  However, because a  lot of interest was expressed, we will be starting a Saturday class in the very near future, probably in the afternoon. If you are available on Saturday and would like to join, please let me know!

If you are a student of mine, I hope to see you at one of the discussion groups. If anybody (student or not) has any questions about this blog, please let me know: Post a comment here, find me on twitter, or email me through my website. Thanks!
