There is a lovely hibiscus flowering plant near our condo this week. I told the children the name for it yesterday. Today they were discussing it as we were walking and I couldn't help but laugh:
"Lydia--that's a hi-biskers (rhymes with whiskers) plant."
"No! 'lige it is a hi biscuits FLOWER"
Elijah told me this morning that he wasn't running away from the waves that he was "scampering." I asked him where he'd learned about scampering and he told me from his Fox and the Hound book on tape. Thought it was cute.
