Our Study of Italy: Week 1

Our last stop in our tour of Europe is Italy. We found some great {and fun} books to read this week and Laurianna decided toward the end of the week that she wanted to learn more about the Colosseum...until she found out more of what went on there ~ and then not so much anymore!
