I was reading one of his texts and reminding myself that he is 7 and reads well but is still 7. Shorter messages probably appreciated. I can read through most misspellings without blinking an eye, but his were looking very strange. Then I realized he was using text-speak — IDK, CU, HF, etc. He is already multi-lingual. No commas or apostrophes yet. Sharon ---- Sharon Villines Takoma Village Cohousing, Washington DC http://www.takomavillage.org
