Another Birthday

Yup, another birthday! Only this time we celebrated Constantinople's b-day. Because on May 11 it was named and this according to us was need of a ceremony. So our history club had a last minute meeting and, just about read the complete Byzantine Empire magazine from Learning Through History, made mosaics, ate Byzantine Food, sang "Happy Birthday" and read some of "Anna of Byzantium".
It really was a lot of fun and a great learning experience. Even Katherine who plugged her ears and left the room when I began reading it as it was "no where near as good as the Viking magazine" enjoyed herself. Maybe her idea in Thor as all mighty ruler will change!
