In response to the one negative reviewer, she is correct that I didn't respond to her phone message (I am the author of Apples). I do apologize. It is now 9 months later, and I can't even remember which word she felt was incorrect. At the time I had one son that just got married and I was hosting a 50th wedding anniversary for my parents (both events at the end of August), starting school with my own 5 remaining students, and preparing for another son's wedding. I'm 1st and foremost a homeschool mommy, not a business woman. I wrote these drills for my precious children, and despite my lack of time to act like a business woman, I do take my own children's education more seriously than I can say...all of that to say that I did check the word in 3 dictionaries (wish I could remember which one it was...I just read through all of the "long -a" section, and can't find any mistakes). What I recall is that the only dictionary that confirmed the reviewer's observation was the old websters. My 2 newer dictionaries confirmed that it was correct. I wish I had responded at the time...but was already pulling all-nighters to keep up with my schedule. I rest in God that I am trying to keep my priorities straight. And, these lessons (which I believe God gave me the creativity to create for my own precious children) did work for us.
