Sillycase method works in my terminal but not accepted

I am stuck on the sillycase question right now and when I run this through

  def sillycase(string):
      length = len(string)
      half = int(length) / 2
      sillycase = string[0:int(half)] + string[int(half):int(length)].upper()
      return sillycase

Your method uppercases the second half of the word, but it does not lowercase the first half of the word.

If the input for the method is Treehouse your method would produce TreeHOUSE instead of treeHOUSE like it is supposed to.

If you fix that issue then your code will be accepted.

LOL I caught this right before I came back to check the answer typical for me to miss using lower() on the first half of the string. Thanks!
