S-P-E-L-L-I-N-G

Austin is a crazy speller. He spells everything now. What do you want to drink? "W-A-T-E-R."

"I just saw a T-R-U-C-K."

I don't have anything to say about this except that it's happening and I'm impressed. Unfortunately, he's a bit of a stickler about getting things right, so he's reluctant to write anything down without checking the spelling with us first. We just ask him how he thinks something is spelled and he's usually correct.

He did ask me today what an "izland" is.

On a totally unrelated note, for some reason Google thinks I'm in Japan. Thank goodness I use it enough that I don't have to read Kanji.

That is so cool. I guess your days of spelling things to get around the kids being present have been past for a while now anyway.

Have you read "Zen Ties"? Only moderately related except one of the kids has a spelling bee sub-story.

Anyway, C-O-O-L!!
