I did a conference workshop last weekend and mentioned that reading Architecture Shown to the Children can improve your ability at crosswords (words like APSE). They thought I was joking.
A couple of days ago I posted about Gothic architecture and ogees.
The crossword in today's paper has the clue, "Pointed arch." Which has come up before, but this time I didn't have to look it up: OGEE.
So there you go. Homeschooling has its advantages.
