Here I Stand

This week we are in our second week of our history study of the Reformation, one of my favorite time periods to study. Last week we read about men like Erasmus who set the stage so to speak. This week we read about Martin Luther and beginning of the Protestant breakaway from Rome. Fortunately there are many books on the subject, so that even Brynna (6 yo) had a picture biography of Luther to read.

So tonight, the girls have curled up in their jammies with a bunch of popcorn to watch the 2003 movie Luther. They've seen it before, but I am hoping with all the reading and discussing this week, they will get more out of it than they ever have before.

Next week we move on to Henry VIII of England, and the week after, John Calvin and the Swiss/Dutch Reformation. Can it get any better than this? :-)
