Alpha, Beta, Gamma . . .

Yesterday was my mother's 95th birthday.  
In recognition I recited the Greek alphabet.

Why? Because my mom was the quintessential "home educator" who did things like post the alpha - omega series above our breakfast table where I read it daily along with the back of the Post AlphaBits box.

I can't begin to tell you how many times that knowledge has proved valuable.  Plus it piqued my curiosity about language in general, prompting me to study Latin and French and English.  

Thanks, Mom.
