When I gave Blake a yarn ball for his birthday Nicholas tried juggling it. I asked him how many balls he could juggle and he said three. TO celebrate his birthday HE received 3 yarn balls. He had fun unwinding and rewinding them and juggling them and liked the surprise inside! I had hoped the surprise would be in the last ball he unwound. I calculated it right so it did happen that way.
When I told Jared he could wind all my yarn for me he quoted me an astronomical price to do the job! We talked about the cost of winding a BIG ball of yarn.. So he received a very BIG ball of yarn with knitting needles and the gift tag said it was a Do It Yourself Scarf Kit! He unwound and rewound it. He then decided he’d like to start knitting. I tried teaching him, but we didn’t have enough time. His sister knows how to knit so she will be his knitting tutor!
Jared received a ukulele for his birthday so he no longer has to share the Family ukulele. The whole family is musical and gets their talents from Julie’s side of the family.
