Why can't anyone spell?

I'm concerned with education in this country. And I'm glad that I no longer teach because spelling among the population today frustrates me. I am really not sure if it is all "sight words" or the teaching of phonics that is the problem. Obviously, if it weren't for spell check, we would come off as a completely ignorant people. This really does concern me. There's nothing I can actually do about it. I guess spelling is about as useful as trigonometry these days.

Anyway, with that, I'll give you Paige's update of yesterday. My mom said she was laughing so hard she couldn't read it all at first.

(And I won't explain that we did lose an hour of sleep, but sprang forward instead of falling backwards.)



Dear Relitives,

                     Since today we fell backwards and lost an hour of  sleep Dad and Julie were all worn out from the sencond day of the best stay at home spring break ever they just slept an hour later than usual so after the pigs got some more protien from the whole 2 raw  eggs then I filled up their water bucket for thier feed in the rain. Then we were off to big church you adults call it worship . First off the decons changed all the lights in the audatoriam even though it took them 6 hours and a lift you could acually see Sam preach. Next Gramal was supposed to give me her check to put in cummunin but she was trying to get away with giving god Bealls cupons it didn't work out to well even though I thought the whole pew was going to laugh out  loud unfortunately God's favorite store is not Bealls so Gramal didn't get away with it. Then we went to Pops and Gramals house to have Bush's while Dad and Julie went to TJ's to do the taxes. Then we went  home and tried to take a picture of my family and I but Layton was being a pest finally we got a good picture. Then siince my mom and peyton aren't leaving until Tuesday Mom and Cade picked us up and we went to our new house peyton played with Frankie I played with Cafe while courtney stayed on the couch the whole time. When they left Peyton, Sadie, and Kylie stayed the night at Kylies house while me and mom watch Jack and Jill until 12:00. Over all it was a good day.
