Hell of a year.
Tonight we had what might be called our first really solid schooling session since that day. We warmed up, we worked on lesson homework, we worked through rough spots, we improved from start to finish, we took a break, and we picked the work back up and cemented it. He felt fit throughout and tired in a muscle building way at the end - it was the most time he had spent bending and forward and stepping under since last year. SO glad we are on the path forward!
