Am I Smarter Than My Fifth Grader?

Wow, what a word. Nope, I had no idea what it meant until I looked it up. Why did I look it up? Well, because it is a a word on DS's spelling list this week! I must say this is the first time one of my children has brought home a word on a spelling list that I had no idea if it was even really a word. At least when I was back in 5th grade my parents could recognize the words without having to look up the meaning. Guess I continue to learn something new every day, even when it arrives as my DS's 5th grade homework. Puts a new spin on the "Are You Smarter Than AFifth Grader?" game, that's for sure! Guess I better go do some studying....
