The funniest thing

Today is spelling test day at Beavers Academy.

The boys have completed their spelling books so now I’m just picking words I think they need to know how to spell.

A couple of weeks ago they had to spell palindrome and another word that I can’t remember how to spell and I can’t find the spell check for blogger. And I’m afraid to ask the boys. I’m afraid they won’t remember and that will make me feel like a very bad teacher. And who wants that really?!!

So today I reminded them that they had a spelling test and they needed to study for it. Daniel comes in with his walkie talkie and begins talking to David. (David is in the recliner in the living room reading a book under a blanket, he can see Daniel giving him the words over the walkie-talkie)

Daniel  ” David, the first word is appreciate”
David  ” a-p-p-r-e-c-i-a-t-e”
Daniel   “good!”  ” next word, sincerely”
David   ” s-i-n-c-e-r-l-y”
Daniel  ” no its, s-i-n-c-e-r-E-l-y”
David  ” oh, ok Thanks!”

I laughed and laughed!

I could hardly understand David over the walkie talkies but Daniel had no trouble at all. They were so sweet to each other.

I know I just listed two words. They have more than two words for their spelling tests. I promise!

I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me!
