As you know, we homeschool.
( Notice the vacuum in the background.)
It is a blessing.
As well as HILARIOUS.
I have always told Samuel that when he doesn't know a word in his vocabulary, to see if he can remember the latin or greek roots of the word, or if it has a prefix or suffix, maybe you can figure ot out.
Well, as I was making dinner, I heard this convesation he was having with himself.
(He may or may not have gotten talking to himself from me.)
" Melancholy. Well a melon is a fruit, and a collie is a dog. So...maybe it is a fruit dog? Which has got to be better then a fruit cake."
" Wait, there is no fruit-dog option to pick. MOM!"
" Look it up yourself, son," I said as I try decide whether to laugh or cry.
Because, really... is there such a thing as a fruit-dog??!!??!!
You just can't teach common sense. :P
