On hand writing, how is yours? Mary Ann, a dear friend has handwriting that would match Thomas Jefferson and the forefathers who wrote the Constitution. I always marvel at her writing, she sure hasn't lost it.
I read somewhere that pretty soon we adults can write in cursive and it will be like code, the grand kids can't read it.
What about signatures, since they are talking about not teaching cursive? However we signed a contract once online and the computer gave us pretty handwriting. So cursive wasn't needed even as a signature.
I vow to myself I am going to endeavor to write better, so far all I have done is lie.
Speaking of lies. One short GGranddaughter story:
This past summer while home the crowd was in the motor home for supper as often happened. I was telling Luke something and Stella wanted my attention. Thinking it was cute I said, "Wait honey, I will be with you just as soon as I finish telling Luke this lie,"
The motor home got quiet, her hand went over her mouth. Then she said, "You're going to be shoveling coal."
I didn't get it.
Her mama explained. She knows not to tell a lie or you might go to the place with the devil, and he will have you shoveling coal for the fire.
OUCH, from the mouth of babes.
