And Now...

... for something completely different.

Wednesday, with numbers dancing before our eyes, we switched gears from math to spelling as we entered the World Spelling Day Competition.  We collectively spelled 12,063 words in about six hours with everyone finishing the one hundred game goal.  

Without looking it up can anyone tell  me what sesquepedalian means?  Yeah, neither could I until World Spelling Day.  See how often you can work that into a conversation this week!  In the meantime, I will leave you with this little gem...

For home school moms out there who are really looking for a way to get their kids excited about these two subjects... make sure you take time to check out World Math Day and World Spelling Day so you can join in next year!
