Happy April! I am so happy to be back in this space. Thank you for all the good wishes for my dad. His surgery went well and he is embracing his slow-but-steady recovery.

There will be a Ways to Play in April free download tomorrow, so be sure to stop by! You can download the previous months’ idea sheets here.
