    Kara! Thanks for posting about your back but I am so sorry you fell again. Please stop falling!

    I bet learning sign language is fun. I wish I knew it.

    Oh well maybe you can learn how to fall. In horseback riding, I was taught how to fall first by putting my arms around my horse's neck, clasping my hands, and sliding off to the side and pushing away from the horse.

    Maybe you can somehow learn to fall more relaxed or something.

    Anyway, I hope you heal quickly.

    Hi, Kara,
    I am sorry to read that you fell. I hope you heal quickly! I have taught some sign language to my students before I retired. I am teaching it now to an after school church group. It's a lot of fun.

    That so cool Karen. I designed to start learning sign language due to being hard of hearing.
