A first: Isaac learned a Bosnian word before he knew the English term!

Thanksgiving Day also happened to be State Day for Bosnia this year. To prepare, Isaac’s class studied national emblems, like the Bosnian flag. He came home and asked us what a coat of arms is. “I know what the Bosnian grb looks like, but I don’t know what it’s for. Miss Selma looked it up for me in English, but she said it’s a coat of arms, and I don’t know what that is.”

(...and if you're wondering, you pronounce it just like it looks---say every consonant sound, one after another)
