Best gift ever!

Best gift ever!, originally uploaded by coming2cambodia.

My niece is 7 years old. Before I came home for my graduation she wrote me a letter, sealed it in an envelope, wrote “aute clare” on the outside, and asked her mother to address it. I am in awe that she did this on her own– it was the best gift I could get. In case you can’t read it, it says:

“congajulatshons! your graguating graguwit school!”

    Awww, gotta love it! Your niece should hang out with my little one(s) 😀
    Also, there’s probably no better spelling that “graguwit” school…

    She’ll be so excited that she is published on the internet and FAMOUS! And, I’m pretty sure she inherited her spelling (dis)abilities from me!

    Just curious — is “aute” pronounced like “ant” or like “outie?”

    Er. “Auntie” is what I was trying to say.

    The funny thing is, “aute” is how McK spells it too. 🙂
