I don't think I can do wifi with the hardware I have. I didn't think about loading in the date and time program and then unloading it and reloading my operation code. I would just need confirmation on the date and time code to use.

Yeah, I ran wifi with old versions for a long while until I had to upgrade to add in support for all the new addons. Even if you do not have the wifi module, having wifi support added in allows you to connect the controller to your computer and send commands to it (via the serial console built into the arduino program) to set/update the date and time. It is a little tricky to do but honestly not bad. We can tell you exactly what command to type in and what you should receive as a response and you will know immediately if the date and time were set because the controller will be updated instantly.
