Anyway, we just wanted to say thank you for your helpful math references on your page. ... Chase wanted to share with you this math guide that he found on someone's math blog.... He'd also love if you could share it on your page....

Your Keyboarding page ... was perfect in helping me find typing / keyboarding practice sites! ... Thank you so much for your efforts in putting this page together... After Natalie started playing a few of the games / lessons, she started to get really excited about practicing and took it upon herself (with her Dad) to find a page with a bunch of cool typing practice games!

It really is the little things that make such a big difference! .....
Be well, Susan.
