LEGO Ideas :: Ancient History Inspired Mini City

by | Aug 27, 2016 | Ancient History, Connecting With History: Vol I, Connecting With History: Vol. II, Lego | 1 comment

While I was up in Portland last Saturday, Ranger sent me some pictures of a miniature LEGO Architecture style Parthenon he was building inspired by his Metal Earth Parthenon. (You can see a picture of him building it here – he was so little! – and also see it on his bookshelf here.)  By the time I got back home on Sunday evening he had completed a whole little mini city to submit to LEGO Ideas

There were a few things that he should have fixed… For example, the Parthenon is in Greece, not Rome, and he titled his idea “Ancient Rome.”  Whoops! I need to make sure that history teacher of his starts incorporating more maps and geography! 😉  … but overall I thought it turned out really neat!

Some of the LEGO he used for this creation came from Lincoln Memorial and the Louvre.

You can find more of his past original LEGO creations in the archives including:

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
