Regina and I are now in Chicago, getting ready for our second of two full-day Mother Goose on the Loose training workshops. There were 78 people at yesterday's workshop, and although it was crowded, it was great fun! Some of the flannel board creations were incredible, and the audience was very responsive. The room itself was at the top of the Chicago Public Library, with lots of windows and sunlight pouring in, which was wonderful. We are looking forward to another exhilarating workshop today and then we head for home.
