I was reading aloud to I1 the other day. A6 came over to listen. She'd read the very book I was reading (Gideon and Otto by Olivier Dunrea) aloud to her little brother herself, but my kids know to seize the day when Mom actually sits down for a little bit.
I got to the line, " . . . he bounced on the back of the ewe."
I heard A6 mutter under her breath, "Oh! Ewe!"
I realized she hadn't known how to pronounce that interesting word and had just learned something new.
An "ah ha!" moment that made my heart sing.
