    I have tried several times to click on the proud flashcard with the picture, but it won’t open to a larger size. What am I doing wrong? Usually when I click on other pictures, they will automatically change to the larger picture.
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    You know the saying…a picture can say a thousand words.
    My 5 1/2 year old grandson lives on the opposite side of the country. He lived in my home until he was 4 1/2.
    I always knew my time with him would be interrupted. Very complicated.
    I was a special Ed. Teacher & observed professionals using sign language with children.
    So…when he lived with me” I showed him the sign for love, or I love you. In case I only a minute to see him.
    Occasionally, I can skype with him.
    The use of this hand sign, takes but a second, but connects us .
    So…I now use the hand sign for the word “proud”.
    Thanks for putting this information out there.
