Tonight, when Anya got on the phone to talk with me, she exclaimed:
I almost died from delight.
Apparently, she picked this word up from Charlotte's Web. (They must be reading portions of it in her class? She wasn't too clear on that part.)
Anya has always been interested in the definitions of words. When Howard tried to push her a little too hard at age 6 to learn how to read, she looked at him and said "I don't want to learn how to read right now, Dad. I want to learn what words mean."
What a girl.
