Andria-I have some shoes...we are trying to clean things out before we move next year. When do you need them? I will be out of town on Week 2.

Andria, would you share the details of the bridge building activity you have planned. We will be building structures in Engineering for the next 2 to 3 weeks and I want to make sure that our bridge building activities complement, rather than duplicate, each other.
