For fans of Dr. Who...
Had one of those funny, funny moments yesterday when we were reading about the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt (nothing like a nice, lengthy intro now, is there?).
We're reading about the various gods, their "signs" and related artwork when we come across the Eye of Horus. Linear, black, somewhat sinister. A protection device for the pharoah. We paint (with blackberry juice) our own eyes of Horus onto the parchment we "made," using flour and textured paper. They look very atmospheric and we all admire them. As we're admiring, Max freezes, then blurts out, rather worriedly, "Is the Eye of Horus related to the Face of Bo?"
I tell you, it was a moment to make a mother proud.
