Ahoy There, Matey! The last few months have had us studying the Greek and Roman civilizations. We've met Julius Caesar and Cleopatra, sailed with the Phoenicians, and tried our hand at masonry. Drew needs no encouragement to turn any cardboard box into a vehicle for his imagination. They both enjoyed making their greek costumes and eating a typical greek meal, and Drew's mill with tiny bricks and mortar really turned out great. The mill was a kit, but after making it by the directions, we tried building aquaducts and roads just like the Romans did!
