In school this week we've been learning all about Ancient China. Part of our studies have been about the discovery of silk from the threads of the silkworm cocoons and how this affected China. This is the conversation that took place between my kids last night.
Steven: "Margaret, did you know that silk comes from wasps?"
Me: "You mean from silkworms."
Steven: "Oh yeah, from silkworms."
Margaret: "Wow!"
Steven: "Yeah, silkworms are from Ancient China."
Margaret: "But not from Texas, right, Steven?"
Steven: "Right."

Well, now I know they're listening!
