I'm laughing, because it happens to all elementary ( and probably higher
level ) teachers. I tell mine, "You get the one the universe wants you
to have." They never quite get it, but they don't ask anymore. As far
as weaving, I tell them that WalMart has beautiful colors, and they can
bring in a skein if they promise to share.Betsy wrote:
