More Adventures in Homeschooling

Eli’s been learning about North American animals. Yesterday, we talked about the red fox, and how the male is called a vix while the female is a vixen.

I’d forgotten that vixen meant “female fox” and told Eli that I’d most often heard it used to describe a mean, sneaky woman. But that it makes sense that the word names a fox since they are known for being sly.

Anyway, you know how it is with kids. You never really know if they remember little tidbits like that.

Fast-forward to this morning, when we’re reading the biblical story of Joseph and what Potiphar’s wife did to him. Zach commented on how dishonest she was, and then Eli goes, “Oooh…she was a vixen!”

I love these funny homeschooling moments!
