Also, while we had the pool out the other day it was hot so I had my feet in the water. Miss O kept pouring water on my feet saying it was cool refreshment! How kind :o) ...then Miss E wanted a turn and said it's cool fresh mint. I tried to correct her by saying re-fresh-ment... she said yeah, fresh mint.

Her favorite, which she has used in the right context, is fly off the handle. It's really funny to hear a 5 year old use that phrase.

She knows that I homeschool and it was like she could see my "unit on China" wheels turning :o)
