My daughter’s teacher had to go home suddenly because she fell sick (some nasty thing is going around). The last-minute substitute, a fellow faculty member, delighted the kids by devoting a class period to giving them a lesson in Tengwar, an Elvish script and language invented by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Truly, I love this classical school. There really is no better place on earth for the children of our nerd family.
