When Ricki was born, our expectations weren't that high. Only after reading a few good books did I realize that there was a huge untapped potential there. I am sure that none of us thought that Ricki would study 7th grade science.
Well, this year Ricki has learned about transformations of matter into various states (solid, liquid, gas), chemical reactions, atoms, and Chernobyl (albeit on a very basic level). I am pleased to inform my Dad (who is a chemist) that his granddaughter aced her midterm exam in chemistry.
Tomorrow she will start studying nutrition and the digestive system. This is undoubtedly more applicable to her life. Nevertheless, I am pleased that she has an inkling of knowledge in chemistry as well.
