Looking Back, Looking Ahead

This summer we tackled some tough stuff!

If you took the summer off, we'd like to welcome you back! It is true that we have one story to finish, but just read along with us and enjoy the story as Maureen and Glenn have translated it.

After we've processed that, we'll step back to review more of the basics, and we all welcome your input on what you'd like to do.
