This afternoon, I was helping Jack with his homework.
Quizzing him on his spelling list, I recited the words, and then he not only wrote them, but verbally used them in sentences as well.
"Twelve," I said.
Then, Jack said, "There are twelve months in a year."
"That was good. Okay, now cent."
"A penny is one cent."
"Yes, a penny is one cent. Weak."
"When I'm low, I feel weak. I feel wobbly. I don't feel strong. I have no energy. I feel like I'm going to fall down. My legs get weak when I'm low."
Yep, Jack knows all too well what weak means.
And for the record, he can spell it correctly, too.
