...my word (J.O.Y.) keeps popping up in various situations throughout my day. Boo (aka Ethan) just came downstairs after reading his The Lost Hero book and wanted to translate some Latin to English utilizing the Mac. I helped him find a free online dictionary. He said he wanted "...to see if my book is right." I asked, "What do you mean to see if your book is right?"
He said a character named Jason says to another character in the book,
"You know that Festus means happy in Latin."
(Oh, ok...so we looked it up and the definition was: "happy, joyful").
Rather serendipitous, no?
Funny where homeschooling will lead you!
