I was unable to make it. My wife had surgery. So I'll have to make Wednesday evening classes.

Really was looking forward to this event. When I arrived was told that it was cancelled.

It was nice to get baby out of the house, but I was hoping for a more baby friendly book selection, and for the facilitator to follow the lesson plan. We had no scarves, no songs(besides the good morning song) and the facilitator did more talking to the adults and telling anecdotes than interacting appropriately with the babies.
