Age of Rome - Montessori Division

"Get me Maaaaake-Uuuuup!!!!"

As I had hoped yesterday, the eldest Llama-ette has indeed been cast as a Celt and her younger sister as a Roman for the Second Battle of Watling Street to be staged by the Missus (with my assistance) at St. Marie of the Blessed Educational Method.

The good news is that the battle has been put off for a week at the request of some of the kids in the class so that they can have more time to work on their costumes.

I feel that I should be allowed to use this extra time in order to whip the Legions into better shape as well, in order (of course) to ensure that Civilization triumphs over the barbarians and that I shall be able to report after the battle, "Veni, Vidi, Yippi."

Heh, heh. This ought to be gooood.

Shouldn't that be Veni, Vidi, Woadi?

Just don't wear woad in practice - if done well, it will freak the kids right out. If not, well, they'd be embarrassed for you.
