So today we learned about the Nile and the Delta. I never knew the history of the kings let alone the connection they had to the Delta and how they looked at flooding as a blessing. How different is that for us now a days? Just thinking of the damage Isaac caused over in my neighboring states. I guess we haven't learned their lessons of living further away from the water.
Back to what I was saying, I mean did I go to school at all? I question my memory loss. You would never have known that I had a great private education and even have a college degree. I must have been asleep when they were teaching all this. Sorry mom! :(
In today's reenactment you will see Tony and his friend, John, with their crowns signifying the King Narmer, who combined the red and white crowns to show he was ruler of all.
The boys enjoyed sliding down the river from upper Egypt (aka my ottaman and a table leaf).
They had to use all their muscles to get the ship going. :)
Tony fell in the Nile and had to get rescued. It was by far his favorite part of the journey. :)
Hope you all have a great week!
