LEGO history lesson

today's history lesson started with the story of the world chapter on the wars of the roses.

diana loves it when i read aloud to her from these volumes.  i'm glad to so i can learn along with her.  i got myself thoroughy confused, though, with trying to keep track of who was challenging whom to take over the throne of england.

so we turned to LEGOs.  we have plenty of minifig pieces to create the individuals we wanted.  after determining familial relationships and making a throne, diana staged a short video outlining the shift in rule from henry vi to henry tudor.

and we think family relations are tough now - it was murder back then!

edward iv married elizabeth woodville and threw henry vi in prison.
i am happyer at home today because home is all LEGO, all the time.
