One of my concerns is that the schools are no longer teaching cursive. I have read that learning to write helps one's brain develop fully.
This was my name on a drink last week at Starbucks. It may be a cross between printing and cursive! I do like the way Lou came out. Looks as though it could be pronounced, "ooh oh ooh." My dad used to say his handwriting looked like hen scratches but I could read it and it was legible and old style and CURSIVE.
