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 --:
