Little crusaders

Recently after over hearing the olders talk about the History Dad taught them being one of their favorite classes in all their school years, Steve has taken up the reigns for history again this year. He has been reading to the younger 6 the beginnings of American History. They read about Lief Erickson and the Vikings traveling to America, as a project they got some clay and in teams designed their own viking ships. After reading about the Crusades the last few days they made their own Crusader capes today.

May the force be with you!

And with you too! Ha ha! A little Catholic joke for ya.  
We have been re-watching Star Wars movies lately to get ready for the new one.  The kids dressed up as some of the characters tonight.  You can really tell how much some were and weren't into the movie....
