O Best Beloved Families:

The yoga balls, many of which had ruptured prematurely anyway, are being replaced by wiggle seats a.s.a.p.  If you need details on this decision, please send me an e-mail and I will explain. In short, wiggle seats serve the same purpose as yoga balls, but without the storage issues.

Please check Schoology for events and due dates.
