Funny story of the day! I gave a bunch of spelling tests this morning, and one particular 4th grade boy was doing great on his! Didn't miss any of the words, until I got down to the word cow. He spelled it colw. Surprised, I pointed to it and said, "Uh-oh, looks like you accidentally messed up on one! How do we spell cow?". He looked at me funny and goes, "Um...well, what is that?". Slightly flabbergasted he didn't know what a cow was, I used it in a sentence, "There is a cow in the field...y'know, a bunch of cows are over there...Mooo?". I saw the light bulb go off on his head, "Ooooohhhh, COW. I thought you were saying cowwell. I didn't know what that was!". Haha, guess that month I spent back in Texas took it's toll on restoring my accent!! Apparently we Texans don't pronounce them 4-legged wildebeests right! :) Haha, it really gave me a good laugh today once we figured out the prob!

That is so funny! you gotta love all the funny moments with little kids! I'm in primary now and have heard some of the funniest things. By the way, I didn't comment on your last post, but good for you on your goals! And don't eat too many carrots or else your skin could turn orange... my mom became obsessed with baby carrots and her skin really did! You're so great and I love keeping up with your life!

Ha, yeah, I actually had a pretty good laugh, then told him he was fine. He went from looking confused to relieved! Poor kid! :)

He's probably been watching too much American Idol and thought you were saying Simon's last name. Or it could just be you're from Texas :)
