This sounds fantastic. Now I only have to work out how to convince my Principal that this is an educational seminar that is going to help me teach my Grade 6 kids better. mmmmm.... I know. IF I tell him that if I can manage my Lupus better as a result of attending this seminar, I CAN TEACH THE KIDS BETTER. I might be worth a try. It will only cost a few ..... may be a lot of thousands of dollars. Children's education is worth it though!
