School Schedule Etc.

I'm needing to share that the covered arena is delayed by 2-3 months. The reason is that we will kindly delay our construction to expedite permitting for the expansion of the house on our property. So we will continue through August with plans for lessons as usual. That means we will save our scheduled closing for the dates of the arena construction and that will be determined in the very near future. Moving forward....
