The Preschool Mind....

Riding in the van today-

Elijah: Mommy, I just figured out a new blend- "ine" has the letters i-n-e. When you put any letter in front of "ine" it can make new words. Like "vine"
Micah: Or "mine"
Elijah: And Micah the silent "e" at the end makes the vowel say it's name.
Micah: What's a vowel?
Elijah: Vowels are bad.
Me: Why are vowels bad?
Elijah: Like in basketball, Daddy says that grabbing someone's shirt is a vowel and that's bad.

That is classic!!! It's so good you are writing these down so that you can look over them in years to come. I'm sure we will laugh about these things for many years! Blessings!
