James has been reading library books about this period of time for his daily 30 minutes of reading. Today he finished the book on the first colony. He was telling his dad about it this afternoon. He told him (with some help) that the first colony was lost and the second one failed. When he was asked about the name of the first colony he thought, thought, and I gave him the first letter sound. He then stated with confidence... "The lost colony of Romeo." No wonder it was lost... Romeo was still back in Italy wooing Juliet (at least on the London stage!) at the time the first colony of Roanoke was lost with little clues of where it went. Just another amazing day of homeschooling!!
