    Miss you and hope all is going well in your studies and such. I'm trying to get caught up with many things and lots of people. Home schooling my grandchild took up a lot of my hours and I fell behind on most everything. She is now in regular school again, I hope that I caught her up and gave her the confidence she needed.
