A little friendly fyi....
Good Point. We are all electric here.

Another good point. Now I need to go out and find a girlfriend before tomorrow morning.

I think it's kind of ridiculous to be working that late when I want to relax on the couch or go to bed. This is why I hate group projects! Online classes should not have group assignments.
It would make more sense to pair you up with someone in your timezone.

We started our hike at 7:30 in the morning on Saturday and my goodness the sights and sounds of the beautiful outdoors. I tell you as we walk the trail and take in the beautiful I can't help but think God is Great, even in the midst of winter there are so may amazing sights. The best is all the holy bushes, I love the way the forest always looks like Christmas because of it.

This weekend we are going on a seal hike to view the Harbor Seals that come down to the tip of Long Island to enjoy what they feel is balmy weather LOL!!! A few years ago we saw the babies rushing into the water, it was so awesome. They have a large Hawk population and bunny population. If you get up real early in the morning, I mean just as the sun is breaking over the ocean you may see the gray fox coming back from the nights hunt, it is truly hard to believe you are on Long Island!!!

Well, enough about me and my last few days, now time to check in with ya'll and see how you have been and what you have been doing...

Miss you guys...

Glad to hear you had a great weekend.

That is what is happening here with cursive writing, the school doesn't teach it anymore. The administration says it is a dying art. I think it is important that kids are taught how to write cursive. I know computers and tablets are the way everything is going (books, testing, etc...) but this is a bit ridiculous.

Handwriting is no longer taught at my school. However, I do (rather did) teach it.
