"The Tower of Lon-geon"
Proud Charlotte Mason mama moment:
When your daughter, during free time, creates a “Tower of Lon-geon” (London + dungeon) out of Lego, complete with 2 hangings and Good Queen Bess locked inside! Also, it is a working candy dispenser!!
High marks for creativity and historical content.
Overheard the same afternoon:
J: Is that Queen Mary?
J: Are you going to hang her?
A: No. Well, actually yes.
J: Yeah, she's Bloody Mary.
A: Actually I'll put her in the Tower. ... This is Good Queen Bess over here.
Why I can't get this kind of detail in required narrations I don't know, but it's heartening to know it's in their brains somewhere! :D
