Jee came home from his first class saying:
Mom, when you knit, you have to be really mellow. If you are tense, you hold the yarn too tight. So, relax. Everything's going to be OK. Just go like this... (showing me how to knit)
The next morning when he prepped for school, he put a ball of yarn in his backpack feeding towards the needles in his hands, so he could knit while walking to school.
Aee responded to her Science class like this:
Mom, I LOVE my science teacher. She is so nice. She said that understanding science will help me understand the world. And I love the world. I love science. I love my teacher. (Initiate hug sequence)
It's great when it all works out.
