Thanks, Jimbo!

This X-Mas, my 9 yr old got a Rainbow Loom...its a series of pegs you attach little rubber bands to in different configurations that make bracelets. She got frustrated with it so I went on YT to find a tutorial on one of the more challenging designs. Initially the motivation for me was to learn so I could teach her but she wasn't interested so it became about me...learning something new & challenging for it's own sake. I got frustrated but persevered & the sense of accomplishment when I finally got it was great! No, I have no interest in learning to make bracelets that tween girls wear but the PRACTICE of learning something new for it's own sake was well worth my time!
