they are like brand new.....and I was happy to find them and of course the price was super too! School is going...we continue to plug along. You will actually be done with your year pretty soon...much sooner than other students....your state testing comes up in May...so I want to prepare you for that. Guess we will have some time then. Otherwise..today is snowing if you can believe it. We are almost into April....so hard to believe. You are getting more hairs on your body all the time. Won't be long and I imagine you will be taller than me! Where does the time go? I hope I can prepare you to be on your own one day...and send you down the right path. I love you Noah..more than you could possibly know.
