So today I was talking with another homeschooling mom and we started discussing grammar. I mentioned that, despite my writing, I've never understood grammar because I've never been taught it (remember, I'm a publik skool gradjiate).
This mother dropped a book in my lap called Our Mother Tongue: A Guide to English Grammar. In looking through it, I was impressed by the clarity of how this complex subject was explained. "I'm going to have to get a copy of this!" I commented.
At once both my girls sent out groans of protest.
"I hate it when homeschooling moms get together!" groused Older Daughter.
