Hi Flutterbee - Thanks. I'm *really* glad that I'm not the only one over 30 here. I feel much more at ease now. And that's okay... I don't think any guys I know (bronies or non-bronies) would be able to sit through the older G1 cartoons! lol As for the educational stuff, I was thinking with the math, I could have applebloom catch apples from trees, count dot-to-dots to draw apples or books or even maybe Spike.... maybe addition and subtraction problems using Rarity's gems or something.... things like that. Still working on thinking it all through to figure out how to do it. Hi mike406 - Thank you so much! Anything I can use to get through to her and have her retain makes it easier on the whole team that I have behind me trying to figure her out!
