We are back!! French Study Tour condensed.

May 27, 2015

It only took several emails, and a 30 minute on-line chat–(they don’t talk live), and we have resolved the issues of wordpress, and we are back in blog business. The last two days have been a whirlwind of activity–arriving early and staying late, getting out letters to those attending state MG conference next week, those with special meals, those who have registered for the pre-tour and getting information out to the folks who have registered for the Saturday MG classes beginning June 13. So if any of the above apply to you, be on the lookout for an email or snail mail. I also completed a letter and survey to those who attended the France study trip and those should be out soon from Michelle, so again–look for it soon.

I think jetlag has passed and I am back on my normal schedule. Here is an abbreviated rundown of the trip to France:
Day 1 – we arrived and boarded the ship, and had a nice welcome reception and dinner before most folks crashed early. IMG_1954
