He who fears the Lord has a secure fortress and for his children it will be a refuge.

Learning her letters.... and apparently some interesting words

Every week at house church, whoever hosts usually provides refreshments and drinks.  The habit has become that we have plastic cups and a sharpie to write your name on the cup to minimize dirty dishes for the host. 

Well, sweet little Naomi is learning her letters- writing them mostly.  She can write a lot of them, but we haven't moved on to forming them into words very much.  She CAN spell her name, just mostly chooses not to.  But if you ask her to, she will mostly recite the right letters.  One of her favorite things to do is to sit down at her little table while Abbey and Maddie are doing school and write out lots of random letters on paper.  Her lists typically including various combinations of the first five letters of the alphabet (what we've worked on mostly), plus the letters in her name. 

Saturday morning at house church, Jason brought me Naomi's cup to show what she had written.  Obviously, she hadn't tried to write her name, she just came up with an oh so classic combination of the letters she already knows...

In case any of you school teachers are worried that she can't yet spell her name (Mom... :)), we had her try again later (after our entire group got a good laugh out of her slip...)

I didn't say she couldn't spell her name. I mere;y suggested AFTER hearing your story that it might be a good idea to teach her. Hey. I didn't suggest Harriet the Spy....Well damin! Charles just dropped a full mug of coffee on me while trying to read over my shoulder. That may be a useful word afterall.
