We kicked off our school year as Celts sacking Rome in Grandma's backyard. Let the Middle Ages begin!
We did have a poignant moment at Walmart buying the facepaint. The cashier asked why the children weren't in school and Angelfish piped up, "We homeschool. We're going to paint our faces blue and spike our hair." Vain woman that I am, I couldn't leave without explaining the educational motive.
