We ended up not driving up to our art classes today--I think the 45 minute drive twice a week is getting to be too much for all of us. We need to figure out how to find meet our needs closer to home next year.

The kids have been doing lots of art here at home lately--probably because we got such cool supplies from The Art Store.

We watched Barbarians: Battle for Rome tonight and learned all about the Cambrians, Goths and Huns. It was really cool to see a forensic scientist do a facial reconstruction from a 2000+ year old skull based on statistical averages and bone contour. The most amazing thing was that historians/ archaeologists believe that the Huns were such formidable warriors that they could shoot an arrow from a full gallop every 2 seconds with incredible accuracy!
