Overheard

At the kitchen table about 5 minutes ago:

Molly: I don’t know how to spell “rainbow”! 

Aidan: I can help you. R-A-N-E is “rain” and “bow” is, um, I don’t know how to spell “bow”. 

Molly. I can spell “bow”! Buh, buh, buh is B and that starts “bow!” But I’m not sure about the rest.

Aidan: It would have to be B-O-E, because an E at the end of a word always helps the vowel say its name. So “rainbow” is R-A-N-E-B-O-E!

 

I want so badly to go correct them. I am a stickler for spelling. But I’m letting this one go, because they did that without fighting, and on a rainy Spring Break day, that’s the accomplishment.

Welcome! Hope you enjoy the blog. I know nothing about the internet, except that I like it a lot. So there's nothing fancy on here, just thoughts and pictures. It's the simple things, right?
