Today was a productive day. Our school day ended quickly and I even managed to run two errands. As an additional treat JD and I ate pizza for dinner on Fort Bragg and I treated myself to a Starbucks coffee. (Can you say "WIRED!")
JD used the Time4Learning website for language arts today. This lesson was also fun. We learned 14 foreign words that are also used in the English language. JD learned what language they all originated from and their meanings. The words were: adieu, faux, al fresco, incognito, a la carte, et cetera, incommunicado, bon voyage, smorgasbord, gesundheit, touché, tour de force, toupee, and hors d’ oeuvres. (It’s ok…no one is looking right now. You can look them up for the correct pronunciation and meaning…I did.) JD has used the word adieu all day. There was a Chapter quiz at the end of the lesson and he scored a (drum roll please…) 100%. My boy is so talented with accents and foreign languages.
