Merry Christmas

It’s almost Christmas and it’s hard to imagine that 2010 is ready for the record books.  Through the holidays, I will be working and dreaming of 2011–the year we launch Traits Complete.  Gulp.  It felt like plenty of time two years ago when we began this adventure.  Now, 1,503,569 hours later, the work is coming together beautifully thanks to so many talented editors, designers, and of course–teachers.  I hope you find your wishes for a great writing program on every page.

May you and yours be heading into some peaceful time together.  Ruth
