Reader The Evil Twin sent in this journal entry her son “H” did for his kindergarten class where she says the class is learning to write and read, and to spell words out phonetically when they don’t know how to spell them.  Evil Twin thought I might like to see his phonetic spelling of Pittsburgh.

I’m going to go trademark that.  BRB.
