Malachai: I don't scrub your uniform quite like the Mexican mamas scrub their kiddo's uniforms. Some of the kids in your class have noticed the spots on your white PE shirt and have been teasing you (seriously!? what in the world?) I found out that you, on your own, had triple washed a t-shirt, just trying to get the stains out. I'm sorry, bud; I promise to scrub a little harder; I'm learning how to fit into this culture too.
Josu: I bought you a tiny, magnetic chess board. You have been taking it to school and inviting kids to play with you during recess. I'm proud of you.
Selma: Ah, you sparkle. . .
