Opening day and Roman fighting

Finally, pictures from opening day...

I don't have good pictures of the kids in their costumes, but at least you can get the idea. The dads in our group built this Greek temple and some of the moms painted it. Zeus and Hera attended the event along with some of the other gods and goddesses (including Nike, the goddess of victory....a.k.a me). The kids each got a chance to tell everyone about their demi-god character that they created and it was fun finally meeting everyone in our group. This is going to be such a great year! We will be studying ancient Greece and Rome and also the founding of America. The amazing moms that planned the year have done such an incredible job of making the three go together beautifully.

Monday we were able to see a Roman fighting demonstration and then the kids got a chance to practice some of their moves. They LOVED it!


School is still going very well. Mornings are a little bit of drudgery as we get through math, piano, and such, but the afternoons we do Epic Adventure stuff and it is well worth it!
