Word Activity

I love word games, though I don’t play as much anymore.

Here’s one of my favorite word games to play: make up as many words as you can using letters from the box in the photo. Try doing this without reusing any letters.

I once had to do something similar for a class in high school, and I remember writing out upwards of 200 words.

How about posting the longest word you find in a comment below?

Looking forward is wonderful, but sometimes it is important to look in the rear mirror – not for regret, but for understanding.

So, here’s what I learned this weekend: Continue reading 100 things I just learned #7

On bubble wraps…

Hello there, it’s been a minute since my last post.

So, I happened on a bubble wrap today, while sorting through some stuff – a bubble wrap that I had neatly stuffed away to pop at some future time. No, I’m not kidding. My immediate response was to stop what I was doing, sit down, and pop every one of those bubbles! Continue reading On bubble wraps…
