I insist that my children write neatly.  Does that sound ridiculous?  I figure, who cares if you're smart, if nobody can read and decipher your intelligence?!  So, I offer a few observations about neatness in schoolwork. 

#1 - Skeeter (#1) and I performed an experiment.  I timed her when she wrote as fast as she could.  I then timed her writing neatly in all her schoolwork.  We were SO surprised!  It took the same amount of time for her to write neatly as it did to write sloppily.
