Yesterday was a great day because the kids got into their Odyssey activity. I was Odysseus and they were the suitors and I slew them with the help of my student TAs Telemachus and Athena. Kind of a spoiler because we are only on Book Three, but the animal sacrifice performed on Nestor’s sandy Pylos (our big barbecue lunch!) is scheduled for Friday and nobody felt like reading, so we jumped ahead to the end.
