Vincent is in Kindergarten. They have a way of teaching them to write now called "Creative spelling". It involves just writing down the letters you hear. A "wing it" approach.
It is cute and I actually like it. It makes for fun letters to Grandma and Poppa. "I lv you. Cm c me soon." etc.
Dan, love of my life, has his own version of creative spelling.
Vincent and Brady are both big into learning how things are spelled. So, now they ask us to give them words so they can try to spell it out.
The other day we were in the car on the way home (from church, mind you).
Dan: How do you spell "Assume"?
Kids: A...S....uh.... (much giggling from Dan)
Dan: How do you spell "Ship"?
Kids: S....h....i....(more giggling)
And his favorite of all
Dan: Spell "Country"
He almost had to pull the car over for this one.
Only daddies get such satisfaction from having their kids sound out naughty words.
