We were talking in the family room this morning about Joe's trip last week.
Joe: "The guys on the cross-country team think that I use big words. Easy words, like reprimand. I had to explain what it meant to one guy 5 times. He said that he was going to write it down in case I used it again."
Amy: "Just think Joe, you can help raise the team's SAT vocabulary scores this year."
Joe: "After I had explained another word to someone, another team-mate had said, 'We weren't all home schooled you know."
It's good to know that at least his vocabulary skills are up to par.
