Hey Jayson,

Let's walk through everything. The first thing you want to do is make sure that you have one checkbox input with ID of "shipping" and a value of "fast_shipping."

<input type="checkbox" id="shipping" value="fast_shipping">

Then, add another checkbox input with an ID of "newsletter" and value of "subscribe."

<input type="checkbox" id="newsletter" value="subscribe">

The last thing, is that for each input, you want to have a label. A label matches up with an input by having the "for" attribute the same as the inputs "id" attribute.

<input type="checkbox" id="shipping" value="fast_shipping">
<label for="shipping">Fast Shipping</label><br>

<input type="checkbox" id="newsletter" value="subscribe">
<label for="newsletter">Subscribe to Newsletter</label><br>

Note how the "for" in each label is the same as the "id" of the input it goes with. This is what connects them to each other and makes a particular label element match up with an input element. Does that make sense?
