The Byzantine Empire

Just like Hammurabi, Justinian had his own set of laws. Here are a couple of my favorites…

-If you find a jewel or other treasure washed up on the seashore, you can keep it for yourself.

-When a bishop, priest, or pastor is praying or preaching, he has to speak loudly enough for everyone to hear. If he doesn’t, God will punish him, and so will the emperor!

Here is history “class” out on the patio.

Luke learned a valuable lesson today:  When you are surrounded by four females, it is not a good idea to claim (even in jest) that all of the bad things that happened in the Byzantine Empire was the result of the Empress consulting the Emperor how to rule.

For this lesson there were paper dolls of Justinian and his wife, Theodora.

When Hazel scribbled in blue on her coloring page Sylvia fixed it just by saying, “Just pretend that she colored it good.”

  1. Sabrina,

    I love your blog. Your kids are so cute, and you guys are always learning about the coolest things. I wish I could be part of your school. 🙂


  2. What is advantageous about home schooling is that a child can work at her own pace. My sister’s kid are in a homeschooling program and I just can see the progress of the two. Most often mom’s who acts as teacher and monitor teaches the kids the importance of values and this is very essential.
