Long and short - I need 2 cards for January.

It was on the morning news back in September when school started. They were talking about the kids (immigrants) that 'didn't get it'
In an effort to keep those children in school.. it is being dropped.

grrrr. My nephew was doing well with it too! He just learned the alphabet in cursive last year,

I love your idea!
My mom used to write notes to my kids and they would practice writing skills to respond. It was great
My Great Aunt sent me a letter asking me if I would mind doing email.. her writing was beautiful and perfect. Although it is in pencil I want to keep that letter.
