We managed to get our family newspaper completed by the end of the month as scheduled.  It was a bit tough.  We were gone from March 8 – 23 so the boys had to pretty much write all of their articles when we came back.  They each managed to write, edit and type an article a day and we worked together on Monday to get them put together in newspaper format.  I am very impressed with D and P.  They don’t enjoy writing very much but they performed quite well under the pressure of a looming deadline.  I have a feeling that experience will help them in the future.
