Obelisk – advanced home schooling

“Look there is an obelisk!” Willow pointed down an odd side street in Maastricht.

I wanted to get a picture with us and the stone shape and he obliged me.

“Strange they should have one here” my son wondered out loud, pointing out that there are more popular in the places we are going (Greece and Italy) than here in the north of Europe.

“i am not remembering exactly, perhaps they were temples or oracles in ancient Egypt.”

We walked for a while and then he said

“Oh, now I remember – they built Obelisks when ever a new Pharaoh was crowned.”

If we were still at Twin Oaks I would give him “Paxus Education” credit.
