We wanted to teach the boys some computer skills (beyond www.transformers.com). So we helped them start their own blog. You can read it at vabrothers.blogspot.com - and comment if you can, they really enjoy checking for new messages. Be sure to scroll down whenever you visit,
they both post on the same day so it would be easy to miss something.
So far they can scan in a document, save it to a file folder, and upload to blogger. They can also take pictures with our digital camera, remove the memory card, upload, transfer the files by batch to their file folder, and upload those to blogger as well. As their typing skills improve, they'll write more I am sure. They are learning a few short cuts, like cut/copy/paste and when to use double click and when to single click with the mouse. Be sure to bookmark their site, I'll add a link to my sidebar soon.
