John has penned his first story. Allow me to translate: The cat kan (sic) jump to the other cat.
John, thrilled with his new-found spelling skills, comes running up to me and says excitedly, "Mama, I can spell you jump. J-U-M-P! I can spell you jump!"
So maybe the English teacher in me is wondering: Do I delight in his first attempts at writing or cringe and rename him Jethro?
Way to go, Jethro!
