Egyptians and Hebrews - Oh, My!

Here is my contribution to the Halloween Party over at fiberdoodles. Stop on over there and see what the fun is all about.

Well, here are the pictures I promised from our Konos History Co-op Class. We are getting ready for a wonderful Egyptian/Hebrew celebration just before Christmas. It will wrap up our first semester of classes. The students did an awesome job with their costumes, although they will continue to work on embellishing.

This would be Noah!

Nimrod, the Mighty Hunter

Pharoah Menes, founder of the First Egyptian Dynasty

The Egyptian god - Amun

and his twin sister - Egyptian goddess Amunet

Pharoah Hatshepsut - the first female Pharoah (18th Dynasty)

The world-famous King Tut

and last but not least - Queen Nerfertari - wife of Pharoah Rameses II

Aren't they all grand?! We are having a blast in this class and the students are all delightful to work with. We will be switching our study to the Ancient Hebrews soon. But for now, we are enjoying all the excitement that was Ancient Egypt.
