Persistance is a good character trait. Similiar to enduring to the end. Excellent if learned at an early age rather than waiting till its too late to learn new tricks! I think you are pretty, too!!!! (I have mentioned this previously.) Claire and I want to come and visit during her fall break in Sept. May we please??? :) Also-check your email in a little while!
