MARA has been working on a calmer grip when working with plastics and is making slow and steady progress. She is also working on tightening her ‘heels’ and ‘sides’ while working next to a power scooter as well as doing a duration carry next to the scooter. She continues to be very eager to work and always has lots of energy and enthusiasm!
