Dear Val,

thank you so much for your support. You do describe exactly what´s on my

Today we had a meeting with some parents of my students. I could explain
again SW - issues. They are enthusiastic about the ability of their children
and gave me their permission to send photos and classroom experiences
whatsoever.So hpefully we can post some cute photos at our Webreport-sites -
We love the pictures from Nicaragua - .

Hopefully you can motivate some other specialists in SW as well to support
me with their dictionaries.

We are doing a great job on our memory cards - I`m proud of our progress!

Best ..
