Woohoo!  For all of us in the CTMH world - today is the biggest & best day of the year!  It is annual Convention and the big Idea Book reveal day, which means we find out all that CTMH has in store for us for the coming season.  

We had a super fun morning - as always the CTMH Executive team did not dissapoint with their entertaining skits & songs :-)   Seriously love those three!
