Thank you Dale!!

That did it. I was making it too hard. I don't remember going over that in the video. Glad I was able to finish so I can now go to bed :) I really appreciate your help.

You can either go with .intro span or .intro > span, both of which would select every span inside .intro (the second would only cover direct children though). Check out some of the CSS pseudo-selectors like :nth-child(n) to grow your selecting toolbelt.
