gooood evening!!!
ive been doing my running trip report in the pub but just wanted to let you guys know. face to face is hard to do in the parks. as long as you stand still its great. i was on twice today with scott.
nate and i also did tango. tango works great. he was on for a good 10-15 min. took the bus ride with us tonight back to okw. sorry nate we left so early.
the tango ap is free and it works on iphones and others also. if you need a fix, shoot me a text and we can hook up. i stayed on long with nate to see how well it worked and it work great. it did drain my battery pretty good but we were heading back. anyone intrested, i can show you whats going on live.

I did the same thing.

I am/was a huge George Carlin fan. My son was a huge Thomas fan. I have to say I preferred the episodes George narrated.

And...I bet he has.

We have been told by the principal who has been through this with her own child) to prepare ourselves to hear things that we do not want to here, and that we will more than likely feel as though we are in front of a firing squad. She also said that this will take upwards of 2 hours to go over the information that has been gathered. Say a prayer for us that maybe it wont be as hurtful to hear the things they will say and that we will be able to use the information to help Ethan and get him whatever help it takes to make him feel good about himself (he has a very low self esteem) and learn at the same level and speed as the other children. I know that we have a prayer and praise thread but I wanted to bring it here instead where I feel the traffic might be greater. Thanks guys!!!
Done.

I play occasionally still. My shoulder won't let me play competitively any more. I did try out in college but I had not picked up a racquet all summer because I was working so much. The results are what you would expect.
