You're a toot!

As I was looking through Hope's schoolwork, I came across a page where she was asked to illustrate an idiom. I wasn't sure I even knew what an idiom was until I looked at her paper. An idiom says one thing, but means another. Hope's example was "You're a toot" and she illustrated it for us. In one picture, there is a little cloud of what is supposed to be a toot (the nice word in our house for passing gas)behind a girl. Did I mention that the cloud had a bow and frowny face? In the other picture, she described what the word really meant with a picture of her standing on our couch.

What would I do without that girl's spunk?!!! The funniest part of it all--her teacher gave her a 100% on the work.
