Even I get in on helping Mom study.
As we told you before, she is learning how to be a stenographer (court reporter). The bottom book is her "lesson" book that goes along with her classes. The top book is a dictionary with the way all of the words are written out on the machine. Mom is learning lots, but says it is a lot of hard work. She is half-way through her second quarter, and has to pass this class not only knowing everything in the lessons, but she also has to pass a speed test too (60 words per minute). She says the lessons are the easy part, it's getting her fingers to move faster that is hard. She has been using them to work her stupid machine instead of helping us visit. We are sorry and hope to do better this week. We miss you.
