First Spelling Test

T had her first spelling test today and aced the thing...making her mother especially proud. During the first 1/2 of the year, the kids had "sight words" to learn. Meaning, they had to recognize the words on paper, but were not asked how to spell them. Now, they have spelling words instead. The child not only must be able to recognize the word, but needs to be able to spell the thing without seeing it. A slightly different skill.

It truly amazes me what these kids are being taught and are learning at such a young age. In my day? All we were doing in kindergarten was learning out letters and numbers, our address and how to tell time. That's it. Otherwise, we were playing, fingerpainting, or eating paste.

Boy, how times have changed!

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
