Last week, when I was at work, I logged onto http://www.wildbluedeals.com/ and scheduled an appointment to have the internet installed at our house. We have gone this long without the internet, but now our oldest is in high school. She frequently gets reports and assignments that she has to use the internet to research information. Teachers e-mail students and parents now. Recently, when we had a meeting with her counselor about colleges and applications, she told us that all of the application materials are on-line now. The kids have to apply, pay application fees, and submit essays through the internet. They can even apply to lots of different colleges from one website. It is so much different than it was when I was in school. When we applied to colleges you had to send everything in that you typed on a type writer. You sent an actual check and had to wait for weeks, checking the mail everyday, to see if you got into your school of choice of not. The internet is making things so much easier today.
