This year I have two high school students at Naches Valley High School, a freshman and a sophomore. Naches and Lasalle High Schools are the only two in the valley using the Apple iPad to replace their text books this year.

I am very excited that my kids will have this technology at their fingertips, but I am very worried about my freshman and his lack of taking care of things! I am worried that something will happen to his iPad and we will be responsible for the $500 cost of the iPad.

I guess he is at the age where he needs to be more responsible for himself because soon he wil be out in the world on his own. That's a scary thought!
