Happy Birthday, Levi

Levi 11

Levi came into this world in a flurry of drama and excitement at 12:06 am eleven years ago. I wondered at the time if that might be his 5 minutes of fame, but it was only the beginning for this boy. Drama is his middle name.

Words. If I could use one word to describe him, it would be words! He loves anything to do with words. Reading, talking, debating, singing, thinking, imagining. I often wonder what his future has in store, but I doubt it will be a silent occupation.

For a boy who uses such words as tantalizing, vicinity, astonished, trample, formidable, and grievously in (constant) everyday conversation, I thought a vocabulary quiz would be the perfect way to celebrate Levi’s birthday.

I recently shared the link to the (challenging!!) 100 Words Every High School Graduate Should Know quiz (and I’m fairly certain most don’t), but the 100 Words Every Middle Schooler Should Know quiz is just as interesting (and not quite as challenging, whew!!). If you get a chance, take the quiz(zes). Come back and let us know how you fared!

(Speaking of words, have you chosen your one little word for 2013? I think I have. Come back tomorrow, and we’ll chat about it!)
