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!
