I was so happy and so excited to have five brand new students in my class yesterday! I kept thinking about it all day, about how much courage it took for them to try something new, not knowing what to expect; how much determination it took to break out of their normal routine, and also how much effort and attention they paid to their practice. They had a lot of new stuff thrown at them, and they were real troopers! Kudos to you all-Noreen, Ruby, Carol, Mariah, and Sandy! It's one thing to think about trying something new, but to actually do it is really commendable. It was truly an honor for me.
