Word Nerd!!!

Ethan has really taken to the game Scrabble lately - and when he went to California with his dad, he got to play it on Frank's iPad. Frank send me a screen shot of one of Ethan's games - which he insists Ethan did by himself. Ethan got 78 points for one word - and when I looked at the word - phenix - the first thing I thought was that he had spelled it wrong. I looked it up though and Webster's dictionary said that phenix was the US spelling of phoenix. I do know that Harry Potter uses the British version of spelling though and Ethan has been reading those books non-stop lately so I will leave it up to you to decide if he meant to spell it the american way or not. Either way - he is a pretty smart kid and does love the word games!
