Welcome to Urf

Alex has been working on reading and has started dabbling in writing. He's also missing two bottom front teeth which leads to some comical situations sounding out words.

Sunday morning I was reading an article in the paper about health care around the global. Alex was looking over my shoulder and then took off. A few seconds later he insisted I come see what he had written on our chalk board.

As I walked across the room I reflexively spoke what I saw. "Urf." 

He grinned with pride.

"You wrote Urf." I said, hoping for a punchline.

"Yup," he said "Just like the picture in your paper! The planet Urf!"

Welcome to Urf

We worked out the spelling of "Earth" and then Allison decorated the rest of the chalkboard.
