It is a lovely opportunity and something they are very grateful for.
Hopefully they will take tons of photos.
My daughter is so excited to see the house of Lucius Caecilius Iucundus.
We studied Latin for a few years in home school and his life and times were part of the lessons from our Cambridge Latin text books.
Well they found his home in Pompey and she will have the opportunity to see that now. They found a guide to take them through Naples and Pompei.
Our little one already knows the history of the city and of Caecilius. She knows that an impluvium is and how Romans served 'fast food' in the streets.
We were astounded by what she got out of a documentary she watched and from discussion about Latin.
She is quick, something else to be grateful for.
Are we grateful for the blessings given to us?
Just a short time ago the Great Depression left many Americans in a very bad way.
The saying of the times was “Use it up. Wear it out. Make it do or do without!"
Our parents got used to saving everything!
I know my grandmother would wash and reuse all plastic bags, aluminum foil, etc. They knew what it was to do without and to work very hard.
You had to eat every bit of your food on the plate because tomorrow there might not be enough.
