Words of the Day

It seems I really do learn something new every day. Below are two words I learned today while listening to my children playing outside:

1) Acornia - n. An acorn anomaly in which two acorn tops are stuck together end to end. Commonly used as an instrument by Webkinz.

2) Yorkie Strider - n. A breed of horse known to be very fast. Breed standards include blondish-brown hair, brown eyes, a yellow torso and black rump that suspiciously resembles a Bumblebees soccer uniform.

This is what Charlotte Mason meant by masterly inactivity.
