We have taken to spelling things. Now it’s tough to hide what we’re talking about from our oldest two of course, but we can get sneaky and add letters in strange places to buy us a little time at least! Trying to spell ice-cream never works so we’ve progressed to spelling “frozen stuff” when we remember in time. It seems we always end up spelling the same things though so they have wizened up!
Jason and I laughed that now the older two are beginning to spell things too. When Faith had finished her supper she asked if she and Joy could go play, “W-I-I,” while the younger two finished eating. We let them go play.
Jason finished his food and left to join in the games. Pretty soon only Grace and Little Jason were left still eating their food. I over heard Grace ask, “Well, Little Jason, shall we go G-S-P?”
