Hey- Check this out!

Let me know if any of you try it. I'll let you know how much I get done ; )

One of the challenges should be to write/call/e-mail 3 friends you haven't communicated with in a week or more. I'm scheduling time for that tomorrow. (Susan... Jessi... Barbie...)

Do you know French, Jessica? Just wondering from Muriel's comment. :-) I love French! However, I'm just learning, so not that great. It's hard to get really good at a language that I really have no opportunities to use.

Hey there Hannah (I know you!)
Yes, I learned a little French as required in my public elementary school (why?, you might ask, in my little bitty town? We didn't even have Mexicans at our school then. So why French?? I don't know either). But then in high school I decided to continue on with it. I went up through French 2 with the Bob Jones Homesat program, and I did French 3 after I graduated- for a little while. : ) i just got too busy with other things that I didn't keep up with it; like you said- when do you get to use French?? The only times it ever came in handy (before I "met" Muriel) was in case I ever lost my English set of instruction manuels (!), I could refer to the French ones. And of course you get to read the labels on products sold to Canadians. And maybe you can even translate a few words from a French menu (if you go to fancy restaurants. Which I don't). : )
But it's just so much fun!! It didn't matter to me that no one understood me or that I might never use it- it's just so much fun to learn it! I think you understand ; )
Of course maybe one day I'll go to Quebec and they won't hate me (too much) if I can speak their language.
