It has been a while since I have done a blog. Things have been very busy lately with training and work. I have been attending jits classes more frequently and am really enjoying learning so many new things. It is overwhelming sometimes and I feel bad that I don't know enough yet to challenge my partners. A big thank you to Brandy,Jennalyn and the guys for being so patient with me. I have some pretty awkward and clumsy moments but we laugh a lot and have fun. I'm going to miss most of next week's classes. I will be at a leadership conference out of town. I am really looking forward to learning new skills and understanding my own leadership style. I am also looking forward to meeting new people and having a break from the day to day because things have been so crazy lately. I will make sure to practice while I am gone. Phase 2 has lots of new things that I have never learned before so there is lots of work to be done!
