Okay, I have given in to a lot of things here. I understand the differences in spelling. I have no problem with flavour, neighbour, colour and all of the rest of those our words. I've even given up on the grey/gray issue. I did have a child at church tell me that my crayola marker had spelled the color/colour wrong. I am also constantly printing out things that the British children correct when they read it but such is life. My Word is the US version and I refuse to have red squiggly lines under half my page to appease a 9 year old. You should have seen it when a friends printer wasn't working and she emailed me a lesson plan - my computer didn't know what to do with half the words. I can get over all of this but please can some explain to my why the word tire is spelled TYRE here? How does this make sense at all? Maybe they are trying to lessen the confusion on being tired and needing some new tires?
I have three children. Two boys - Jackson and Jared and one girl - Jordan. We lived in England when I began this blog but we have now returned to the US. I am a stay at home mom even with all three kids in school and I love it!
