First, the Alice schedule! This was turned out to be fairly easy day today, and the schedule includes a make-up day for anyone who might fall behind, so don’t worry if that happens. It’s also more than ok if your schedule permits or demands you to work ahead a bit. We’re pretty laid back. Just try to remember to take a quick pick of each scheduled days finished steps and add it to the album in the Facebook group to get your participation credit. Are you ready? Then here we go!
