Just thought I'd post this here. I copied a phrase off a friend's facebook yesterday & it was written in military code. If you could read it, you were supposed to copy & paste it to your profile. Well, I read it, no problem. Called the kids in to see if they could get it (I knew they would) & of course they all could read it, no problem. I guess between watching NCIS & playing Battleship they knew most of the alphabet. So, we've been having fun writing stuff in military code & deciphering it. Thought maybe some of my Homeschool readers might be able to have some fun with this too. ;-)

Not just homeschool kids - don't forget us senior citizens too. That was fun! It is different from what LAPD uses so they were mostly new to me!
