Today I stopped by my school and picked up my laptop. I've really enjoyed my tablet this summer but it does have some limitations. The latest update did improve some things though I am happy to say!

I also started working finally on my parent letter. I am sort of embarrassed to say that I haven't done letters in the past, just postcards to my homeroom parents. We have back to school night the second week, so I see them all early. Anyway, here is what I have so far: Parent Letter 2012
