Hi Dustin,
Let me know if I am going against list ettiquette to repond to you
and the listsserve.
Thanks for the info.  The group I will be working with will be from
7-17.  I will be breaking these up into groups 7-9, 10-12, and
13-17.   I may be too ambitious starting out yet something need
to be done for the kids/youth in my community.  We hope to
have fun teaching PYTHON and give them a beginning
foundation in programming skills.

 I appreciate the reminder.

Please explain a bit more...

Thanks Again,
Enjoy The Journey.
