I thought you all might laugh at this event that happened a few weeks back. Philip and I work very diligently on homework once I return home from work. Every week he receives 5-7 new vocabulary words that he must know and understand the definition and be able to use it in a sentence. The teachers correlate the lessons with the vocabulary, I guess, to help the kids understand and prepare for their tests.
So they were studying in science the early Earth and fossils and dinosaur era. Apparently there was discussion about the "early ancestors" of the elephants, who were the wooly mammoths. The vocabulary word was ancestor. I thought that he understood the definition . This was verified during the family prayer that evening when Philip prayed for each grandparent and "bless all my ancestors." No one could keep a straight face during the prayer. Of course, Philip's innocent response with innocent eyes is, "What?"
It was so funny to hear, but in one way, I had to be glad because he did do well on that vocabulary test ! :)
God bless you!
