We have been very busy sending messages back and forth to our new friends in Galesburg, Illinois. In the beginning we only had one computer on which the internet was set up. This made replying to messages very slow as most classes involved in projects had numbers over thirty.

Here are some of our emails which we sent to Galesburg --:
