Then about February to March, when the proposals are due with Heartland, we waffle around. Maybe we won't teach classes this year. ..are we sure we have the time?
But then we pull the proposal together and send it in and wait for people to sign up. As the time for the class nears, we start bouncing new ideas off each other and in the process we start to smolder into a small flame.
When the class meets - WOW! - we find we have another super group of teachers who energize and support each other. And this year we say - This is the BEST group ever!
