We bought Story of the World Volume 1 on CD and listen to it in the car. Anna is very interested in the story, and I decided to dig a little deeper into history with her even though, as usual, I am much better in planning than in implementation. At least I managed to bring a couple of books home to supplement SOTW narrative. Both of us really like You Wouldn’t Want to Be… series, and we read You Wouldn’t Want to Be a Sumerian Slave! for Mesopotamia. Of course, there are so many possible projects here (mud bricks were high on my “if I ever have time” list), but as I was working from home with Anna at my side I asked her to pretend that Lego blocks are mud bricks and build a Sumerian house or a temple. Anna took my suggestion very seriously and said that she needs to plan it first. She came up with a very involved plan of a “Temple to all Gods”. There are several levels and a working elevator to the Sun God’s Dome (apparently, the Sumerians are very evolved people!). There are special offerings planned for different gods. Interestingly, similar to me, daughter had fun planning and describing her vision to me, but expressed zero interest in actually building this temple. She said, I will build it one day when I figure out how to make it perfect. She is so my daughter in so many ways!
