Day 99: Historic Settlers of Rome (aka Settlers of Catan)

So we finished our History book for the year. It was a little sad. After drawing chariot racers, building a working aqueduct, dressing some Roman dolls, reconstructing a Roman villa, playing the Ransom Caesar game, becoming a senator, and building the Roman Colosseum, we are ready for something new. Rome was divided and is fallen. We have learned a lot and enjoyed every minute of it. I really love how history comes to life in our house - I did not experience it like this when I went to school, actually, it was rather boring. 

To celebrate today, we played a game of Settlers of Catan, the Cities & Knights expansion, and pretended that the barbarians are attacking the Roman empire, not Catan. It was so much fun.

We already got the next book of the Story of the World, volume Two, and we are very excited to get it started in a little while.
