Yo Ho Ho and a Bottle of Rum

Arrr Matey, Friday is Talk Like a Pirate Day, made famous by Dave Barry six years ago.

So what are you planning for your celebration of this great holiday? The parades, the parties, the opportunities are endless.

Of course, being homeschoolers, we'll have to plan a thematic unit around the day. We'll go to the library and check out age-appropriate books and movies on the subject. We'll make diorama of pirates making their captive walk the plank. And perhaps lapbooks of thieving pirates and their booty. We can even visit Wikipedia and write a report.

Or, maybe we'll just read Treasure Island and watch Peter Pan. Well that and practice talking like pirates.

Shiver me timbers!

Apparently this is huge at Belmont Abbey College, where my husband teaches and my high-schooler is taking a Latin class. She came home with amusing tales of her classmates' costumes and personae.
