Mardi Gras, The Olympics and Ancient Greece

This weekend we took the kids to see Percy Jackson and the Olympians. It was fantastic! We had a blast! With the Olympic Games going on in Canada right now, we have all kinds of fun things to learn about in school this week! Here's the lowdown, lol. We wil be learning about The history of the Olympic Games, we will be learning about Greek mythology, and learning some greek words, and we have asked a couple of friends who live in Canada to send us postcards from Canada! We will be learning about Canada as a country, etc. Its going to be fun! For Mardi Gras, we will be making a Kings Cake! Fun! Im in a baking mood, spurred by my purchase of real amish made apple butter this weekend! The amish white bread is getting ready to head to the oven, so we can feast on it tonight at dinner! YUM!!!!!
So, we will be busy this week, having a BLAST with school! Isnt that how it is supposed to be!!! :)

You always have such fun ideas! BTW, Todd can't wait to see that movie. He has finished the series and is dying to go.

We just finished an Ancient Greece unit and the kids loved making mosaics from construction paper. We are finishing up Percy Jackson as a family, then we will watch the movie next week. Can't wait! I don't know if you have read the books, but us people in the STL area know of the key mistake Mr. Rick Riordian made about the arch and the river. The kids and I were laughing!
