Word search

Tonight, I am sitting here having the sweet conversation about spelling with my oldest twin. We are talking about the new spelling curriculum at school and how tricky it is.

We were discussing the whole "I" before "E" except after "C" deal. And how it can seem hard to learn all of the rules.

Then he said with a straight face and a sweet voice, "I made up a new word today. It sounds like "chuckle," but it's "fuckle.'"

You try not laughing. 

Some moms might have corrected such a word. But he said he found it in a word search at school. So I'm sure we will be working that into a sentence somehow tomorrow. You know how we are. 

Okay, I didn't google it in front of him. But there are a few definitions. Some are a little too heavy for a 10 year-old. Even in this house. But I'm sure I can figure something out.
