After the feast, we provided each other with live entertainment.

We held a Viking funeral. It didn’t quite go how we expected it to. It took a lot longer to get the paper boat to ignite, required the addition of rubbing alcohol, and ended with Cameron juggling flaming cotton balls.

We talked about inflation and compared the cost of things in 1938 versus today.

The boys each picked a different famous Viking to teach his brothers about. Cameron picked Harald Bluetooth and finished his report with a youtube video about why we call it bluetooth today.

Cameron created a PowerPoint of Norse beings and presented it to his brothers.
