Shouldn't the checkbox append be put above the event handler?

I know she touched on the order of things in a prior video.

Wouldn't you want to append the check box to the list items prior to the event handler within the actual code? My understanding is the Event Handler would run on a checkbox that hasn't yet been added...

We're not handling any events on the checkbox. We're just using the state of the input checkbox during our handling of a list link click. We don't do anything in the event the checkbox is checked or unchecked.
