The Byzantine Empire

This year in History we are studying the Middle Ages.  We are currently looking at the Byzantine Empire.  Today we talked about Empress Theodora.  She married Justinian, the Just Emperor.  The girls enjoyed talking about her today, partly because when she was young she worked in the circus as a clown.  Here is a picture of my two "Empresses" in their crowns.

We just went to the circus this past Saturday.  The girls had a great time.  They got to see the animals up close before it started.  We like elephants!
