We Came, We Saw, We Conquered…

…our second week of school – woo, hoo!!!  Ok, maybe that’s not as impressive as what Julius Caesar accomplished when he said “Veni, vidi, vici”, but this mom is glad to have survived the first few weeks of school without any major hiccups, meltdowns, or catastrophes :).

This is one of the pictures that the boys worked on while I read aloud from Augustus Caesar's World.  They have also worked with clay - I'm trying to keep their hands busy so their brains can concentrate :).  So far it is not one of our favorite books.  I plan on looking at alternatives this weekend.
