Joshua's assignment (among others, but this one begged to be shared) was to write five sentences using plural nouns. The sentences were the fill in the blank type so I will capitalize the words he chose for his sentences.

1. You can see many JEDI on the farm.
2. The ALIENS take good care of them.
3. The STARS are clucking loudly in the barn.
4. In the fields you will see VAMPIRES.
5. Two SPIDERS were following a sheep.

I can only imagine what a public school teacher would have said about these sentences. I should count myself lucky he didn't write his answers in Hut...

Hut Update

We went on a field trip with our homeschool group to a pizza parlor. The kids got to make their own pizzas and tour the kitchens. It was very cool. My sweet husband had the day off and had gone with us. He, unfortunately, got called in to work. Both of us thought it was a quick fix. he'd be gone an hour and back again for dessert. Nope. 2 hours later, my friend offered us a ride home. I eagerly accepted wanting to give her the opportunity to show off her new minivan that she is so proud of anyhow. =)
She has an adorable daughter who is about 4 now. This child has the most excellent vocabulary I have ever seen on someone so young. Joshua sat next to her, and right behind my friend and I.
The two of them were chattering at each other and then I hear....CLICKS and GIBBERISH!!
"JOSHUA DAVID!" I yell over my shoulder, "Don't you DARE teach that child Genosian!"
"Aw, Mom...just a little bit of Hut maybe?"
"No, You will NOT teach anyone any alien languages!" and there was a deep, sad sigh from behind us.
My friend laughed and laughed. Hmph. Wouldn't have been so funny if her Lilbird had been speaking Hut or Genosian for the next month! hehe


Joshua runs into the living room from Sissy's bedroom, where they had both been chatting and playing.
"Mama!" he calls as he enters the living room.
"What do you do when you get slobber in your mouth?" he dances around as he asks. Agitated much, son?
"It was YOUR slobber, right?" Now you knew I had to ask. He nods.
"Sissy threw me out of her room for swallowing my own spit!"
Umm...huh? Guess we are ALL grounded from Sissy's room then.

Would it have somehow been less gross if he'd spit it out in her bedroom floor? lol
So yes, I had to explain to him that saliva was supposed to be swallowed...and then yes, I did clarify that YOU were supposed to swallow only YOUR saliva.
