After Christmas in Sicily with my family, we flew up to Rome for a couple of days. We did a lot of walking in those two days! So many things to see that we had read about and studied all our lives. All my siblings and I used the Calvert School curriculum for K-8, and every Calvert student takes Art History in 6th Grade, Sculpture in 7th, and Architecture in 8th. We loved reviewing those textbooks together mentally as we traipsed about Roma!
The four Green siblings inside the Colosseum.
Which tourist does not belong? As in… does not belong in this century??
Smiling babies and carrot sculptures. (Unfortunately Calvert School did not cover carrot sculptures.)
The Roman Forum, the old center of Rome.
Lena’s new favorite game.
With Romulus and Remus and their wolf-mother!
Italian military policemen (carabinieri, or “the carbs,” as some lightly refer to them) wear uniforms designed by Armani. These two had some special get-up, though, even for carabinieri.
Biggest jars of Nutella I have ever seen.
Exploring the Roman subway system and snacking on a Nutella-filled crepe.
My mom watched Lena one evening so that my sisters, Elliott, and I could go out on the town for wine and antipasto. Delicious!
