I love that my child has learned to read except that now she can figure out when I spell four letter words. That part sucks, but it is so sweet to find her hunkered down in her little rocker reading “The Boxcar Children”. Makes a mama proud even though she is notorious for skimming the letters and guessing at words rather than sounding them out.
The Princess attends Christian school and they memorize a new Bible verse or two each week. My routine is to give her a printout of the verse on Monday morning, she reads it and then we repeat it several times a day throughout the week. This week’s verse is Psalm 34:12-13.
Here is how she “read” it this morning:
Whoever of you loves life and dresses* to see many good days, keep your thong* from evil and your lips from speaking lies.
I can’t stop laughing at “Keep your thong from evil”.
Get thee behind me,
