#450: Odysseus' voyage home

30 days of thanks: day 4
I am thankful, as a parent,
for excellent schools.
Although I homeschooled my kids
for many years, it wasn't because Nantucket
doesn't have amazing teachers.

This is what my freshman just finished 
for her English class:
Odysseus' 10 year, fourteen step journey home.
The banner is about six feet long and three feet high.
Click on the picture to see the detail.

My favorite detail,
Odysseus tied to the mast as his ship sails past the sirens.

Recognize these faces?
Zayn, Niall and Louis from One Direction.

English assignments can be fun...
