Eeeestriches?

A funny for today.  We were reviewing Phonics rules today in Grace's schoolwork when we came across the following picture.

I read the line to her.  I read "The long sound for e is E like in......" and before I could say or point at the picture, Grace says excitedly "Ostrich!!"  It was about 3 seconds before all of her siblings started laughing and then she realized there is not an EEeee in Ostrich!!

Aunt Corina, we believe it is supposed to be E like in "Emu"!

"Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?"
Job 39:13

LOL! That's funny! I'm guessing it has to be "emu", too.....kinda a confusing picture/word!
Love you guys!

God bless ACE! I think it's E in geese. But seeing as there is only one, that doesn't really make sense either. LOL.
