  1. Hi Taunese,

    Welcome to the Winter Learning Journey!! I am so sorry that I didn't post a comment on your blog before now. I simply didn't see this awesome post until I started scrolling down. Sorry!!

    I must say that this is the most detailed post that anyone has had about Milo of Kroton. You have included far more than the three facts that were required. Well done! I love to see that you went above and beyond and took your own initiative to create an elaborate answer. That shows great dedication.

    I hope that you are able to continue with the Winter Learning Journey and continue to post such amazing activity blogs on your site. I will check back on Thursday to see if you've posted anything else. I really hope that you will!

    Cheers, Rachel
