I decided to roll Chapter 34: The Rise of Julius Caesar, Chapter 35: Caesar the Hero, & Chapter 36: The First Roman Prince into one post. We didn’t do a lot with these other than read books and make some mosaics (much fun). For whatever reason, Bean found Julius Caesar fascinating, even with the beheading of Pompey and brutal stabbing death of Caesar. She also liked the stories about Cleopatra. Oh my high drama girl.

We made mosaics using black beans, kidney beans, and black-eyed peas. Both girls loved it and would have made more. Unfortunately for them, I couldn’t handle more than one.
Bug made something (upper left), and Bean made what was supposed to be a mermaid (bottom). She went a bit overboard on the beans and all recognisability was lost.
